I am looking to expand my "flock"...well, ok so its not exactly a flock-- basically my solitary rooster needs a new friend or two, since his only housemate has, uh, been evicted so to speak. I hatched Pippy from an egg, raised him with another chicken that I got as a day old chick (who, of course, turned out to be a rooster too...), and the darn thing is now 9 months old and follows me everywhere and crows whenever I am out of sight. It is beyond ridiculous! His friend became interested in the neighbor's hens and is being re-homed (both because he has become aggressive towards people and also because the two roosters have officially stopped getting along). Pippy, however, seems to have no desire to be with other chickens...he never goes anywhere near the neighbors hen-house even though he knows there are chickens there and when her hens are out, he basically chases them and then goes back to following me around and finding treats (aka bugs) for me. He gets nervous and starts pacing and crowing whenever I put him back in his run and walk away. I feel so bad for him! Since yesterday, when I had to remove the other rooster, he has been living by himself, but obviously that is not a permanent solution. I can't quit my job and spend all my time with a neurotic little rooster! I guess I would like to try to introduce him to a hen, but I am worried since he has shown zero interest in other chickens other than to chase them. If I put a hen in the run with him, I am worried that he might just view her as an intruder and pick a fight. Any thoughts? Think I should just try it and see what happens? Would it be ok with just one hen? Or what about a very submissive rooster, like bottom of the totem pole, who would just let him be the boss?
