My 3 year old hen, Miss Tilley, lost her sister 3 weeks ago and I need some advice on getting her a new family. Would like to add 2-3 chicks. My neighbor a couple of blocks away has a rooster and 6 hens. One of the hens had a batch of chicks about 3weeks ago. I am thinking that maybe I could get some fertilized eggs and put them under Miss Tilley for hatching so that she thinks of them as her own. I can get the fertilized eggs from my neighbor but I need some advice on what to do. I also thought of introducing her to Jack, the rooster , but this might be too traumatic for her - does she go to his home or does he come to hers? Another option would be to see if I could take 2 or 3 of my neighbors chicks and see if Miss Tilley would accept them. Looking for help as I am fairly new to chicken raising and had a traumatic experience putting down Miss Tilley's sister, Freida, recently.
