In my ongoing saga of trying to introduce two older EEs to six young Red Stars . . . here is a brief recap, and my current problem. Penny and Grace were together for about a year and a half, alone together. i got six Red Star pullets, and integrated them too late, after the RSs were big enough to be full of themselves. The RSs were beating up on Grace mercilessly, but Penny got along fine with them - she showed them she was boss. But when i pulled the two out, Grace began ferociously attacking Penny (probably to make up for her frustration). Grace had been known to be a a bit brutal with Penny before, but now it had increased. So i rehomed Grace to a nice big farm where she could freerange. Only problem is, now Penny is very depressed. She just mopes around the pen, staying off by herself. She won't eat any treats, and walks off when i enter the pen, looking over her shoulder at me like i'm a monster. i know a lot of people probably think that chickens don't have feelings. But i know for sure they do, just by seeing the sad look in Penny's eyes. So now, what do i do? i honestly don't want Grace back, as she was picking on Penny. i suppose my options are to find Penny a new little friend and put her back in a smaller pen so she can bond and live her life in a duo. Or i can just wait and see if she perks up after some time. It's been two weeks so far. Has anyone had any experience with a depressed chicken who lost their buddy? If so, how long was the grieving process? Thanks for any help or advice anyone might offer.
