I have a question and I'm not sure if this is where i post this, as I'm new here. I recently accquired 2 new hens, one a Easter Egger and one a Red. Well, sadly my red (Peggy Sue) got out and hasn't returned. I am absolutely heartbroken. I want to get a new hen to "replace" her. My easter egger( Henrietta) is about 7 month old and just started laying. My question is should I get a hen about the same age and is there certain breeds that go best with others? I know about the pecking order but is there an easy way to do this?? Any help is appreciated!!
