    I had two Rhode Island reds, one hen one rooster! A fox got my hen about a week ago! Could my rooster be lonely??? He just doesn't seem right, he's eating and drinking but just seems off!

    Chickens are flock animals and aren't really happy without being part of one. I'd try to get more hens or look for a flock in need of a rooster and try to rehome him. Keeping him alone isn't ideal...
