Hello, Can anyone please help me shed some light on this?? My 2 1/2 yr old Barred Rock hen has started to CROW!!! we lost our only other little chicken almost 2 weeks ago. She was a very gentle, sweet Easter Egger and I'm just devastated. She was my little angel. Let me do anything to her. The Barred Rock clearly was the alpha bird at the top of the pecking order. She acts fine. She is eating, drinking, normal poo, she plays outside taking her dirt baths and eating grass and digging etc etc etc. Sooooooo I really have no way of knowing if she's grieving her or what??? She's just started doing this a couple of days ago. I do have to say that this did begin AFTER my phone alarm went off while I was out there with her feeding, cleaning, etc and the alarm is in fact a rooster crowing!!! Could that have influenced her possibly??? I am just so confused. Sadly my husband won't let me get another chicken. Our next door neighbor also has just one chicken who I'm sure she hears. Knowing how chickens are, I don't suppose we can just introduce them to each other to play maybe??? Is this possible or would they fight??? How about if they are introduced thru a fence maybe since our porch is divided in half with my chicken's coup and run is on one half and the other half is ours??? I'm thinking maybe they could start seeing each other and maybe communicating or something??? Lol I'm grabbing at straws here as you can see!!! You can see it for yourself in my video below. I'd appreciate ANY thoughts or ideas please!!!
