Poison Ivy had 3 siblings. One was a rooster, and we aren't allowed to keep roosters in our area... We gave him to a better home. One died from heart failure, and while innocent Coconut and Ivy were grazing in our large backyard, a hawk came down and killed her sister. Ivy has been alone in the coop and backyard for 5 months, and shes drowning deeper in the void of depression every second shes alive. I want to do something. I bought chicks a few weeks ago and they have grown at 3-4 weeks. They've already met Ivy and love to play with her. There's one particular chick who already has most of her feathers and is huge. I mean, huge! I want to put her outside with Ivy so she won't be lonely while we're waiting for the other chicks to grow up. After tons of research and talking to my friends who own poultry, I learned that most chickens will "adopt chicks" and take them under their wing. Before I risk innocent Emily's life, I want to make sure Ivy won't go and attack her or Emily will die. I love all my hens, and Ivy's depression has hit me hard, and it's rubbed off on me as well. So, After this huge un-needed essay, will Emily be safe with Ivy in the coop? I will provide as much information about Ivy, the chicks, the coop, their health, and whatever you need to answer me. Thank you so much.
