Hello, I am new and researching chickens as pets and possibly potentially egg layers (in the future). I had a question that I cannot seem to find... if you are just getting a chicken(s) as pets... is it recommended to have more than one? I know it may seem silly to ask but I have raised many animals (animal lover) and have always found in research some do best alone and some do best in pairs because they are "social" and don't like to be alone... but I can't seem to find much info on chickens about this. Would it be okay if I only bought one chick and raised it and then cooped it outside - or would two do better? Thanks!
