We recently moved and our 3 "girls" have adapted quite well... until yesterday. We have been letting them free range on our 2+ acre property, when someone is home, but yesterday our neighbor stopped by to say she saw a fox walking in her yard with one of our hens My husband found another carcass leaving a single hen unharmed. Needless to say, our family (and neighbors) are heartbroken. We were planning on increasing our flock in the spring, but after yesterday, we are now planning on getting baby chicks within the next week. We purchased a 2' x 3' coop before we moved ( http://www.tractorsupply.com/tsc/product/precision-pet-orb-country-classic-coop?cm_vc=-10005 ) as a temporary coop for our 3 girls. We recently built a new, larger coop (4'W x 8'L x 3'H) next to the temporary one and planned on using it for the chicks. My question is, will we be able to integrate the chicks sooner where we only have the one hen? Our surviving lady has always been the most social, but I'm a bit concerned now that she's by herself. Any suggestions or insight would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!!!!!
