I have a hen that is a few years old - she had encephalopathy when young and I somehow managed to keep her going. I had her in the house in a cage for a year - now she is outside in a coop all by herself. I can't put her in with the 3 other girls because she still has some issues and they will pick on her (she falls over sometimes and has trouble getting up). She is otherwise completely fine. Just wondered if there were any recommendations for a friend for her. Perhaps an older silkie hen or something that might not be likely to pick on her - are there any other small animals that might make friends with a hen?
