Lonely hen

I lost my third hen today out of a small flock of four. They did not make it to two years of age and I am torn about getting more. The one remaining hen is distraught and lonely never having been dominant or alone. Should I get her a companion now or wait until spring when I can purchase from a reliable breeder?

Get one now. There are plenty of people on this board that can offer a hen.
Hi and welcome to BYC. Knowing the cause of death of her flock mates would be my priority in your situation.

Chat with other BYC members nearby using the links in my signature, below (turn your phone to landscape to see them).Make yourself at home and enjoy the forums.

Best wishes
