    Four years ago I adopted a rooster and a hen that were about to be killed. I never planed on becoming a lover of my darlings but I did. Sadly two weeks ago a opossum got into the coop & killed my sweet Henny, leaving the rooster Boss all alone. I think I should get him a companion, no? They were both RI Reds & if I get him a lady should it be the same breed? Does anyone have any ideas where I can find one? I've looked online & they all seem to be chicks for sale, with a min. of 5- Our coop is small, maybe I could have 2 hens...what is best?
    Please advise, I can see how sad Boss is...

    You can probably find a hen in the Buy, Sell, Trade section of the board at the bottom.

    Easiest way though? Click the search link in the blue bar at the top of your page,

    'Forum' -> 'Chickens 8 Weeks & Older - For Sale'

    then 'Select which country to search' -> USA -> California

    aawww poor guy....

    have you checked craigs list??

    post in the farm and garden explaining that your roo lost his lady and is lonley....

    i think you'd be safe with any breed.. but if he's large fowl, i wouldn't get him a banty lady friend..
    if you've got room, 2 lady friends would probly make him a very happy rooster..

    have you read about quarantine procedures and introducing new birds??
    there's threads on here about it.. i don't have a link to any inparticular...

    good luck with your matchmaking...
