I have a problem.... Predators (either animal or human) made off with 5 of our 6 young hens, leaving just one lonely and confused (and cold) chicken to face her first winter alone. We are new chicken owners,and I don't know how best to care for our lonely girl. Should we give her away to another flock? (hopefully to not be eaten right away, since we've grown fond of her) Or should we get 1 or 2 new chicken friends for her? Would it help to be her same color and size? I understand about the pecking order problem and that's why I'm trying to figure out the best solution. We really don't want to have to 'put her down' to keep from her being pecked to death or miserable.
