I have a small flock of Silkies. I had one rooster and 3 hens, with several new chicks. My rooster was attacked, I believe by a raccoon or possum and was killed. I am very new at having chickens and really unsure as what to do? My poor little hens seem so lost and confused and won't return to the coop at night. I have to pick them up and place them back in. My questions are: What do I need to do to about losing my rooster? Do I replace him with a new one? Will he take charge of the my hens if he is new? and will the hens take to him? Also, how do I teach them now to go back into the coop? Any help will be appreciated.
