Went out to tend to the chickens this morning and Psycho, my frizzle rooster had died overnight. We bought him at the auction about 9 months ago. He was a featherless mess. Bathed him, which he loved, especially the blow dryer. Within time he started looking pretty good. I always thought he was an old chicken. You don't know what you'll get at the auctions, but he was so pathetic he became my special project. He had his own girls, two silkie hens and two banty cochin hens. He did his roosterly duties and kept his girls in line. My concern is now that he is gone will the girls go through a new pecking order. Should I get them a new rooster to keep the peace? The sad thing was when I found him this morning the Cochin Hen, Big Momma, was sitting next to him in the nest box pulling at his feathers as if to say "get up". Never thought I would get so attached to a chicken. Any advice?
