Hi, we lost one of our girls yesterday, Farker was a lovely chicken and she had a soft egg stuck which took her from us and I am worried about the one we have left, she is just over 1 year old. I am not sure if we should introduce a new chicken or where to start. Has anyone got any experience / tips for us?
A slow introduction usually works best. A cage in the coop or a divided coop so they can see but not touch each other for about a week. Then a limited time together, supervised, free range so there is plenty of room. You can tell how they act during this time if they are ready to stay together yet.
Thank you for your reply.
We are keeping a close eye on her and trying to decide the best way to divide up our pen / coop.
