Need advice! I have 6 one year old hens (Rhode island reds and buff Orpingtons) and was raising 2 12 week old buff laced polish. Today one of my polish was killed by a hawk. Now the other one is looking for her and seems withdrawn. It's the saddest thing ive ever seen! I'm worried that now that she doesn't have another hen her age my older ones may not accept her into the flock, she seems alone... They were separated in the run(They can see each other) and sleeping in a separate "baby coop" . the other one is alone now and sleeping alone. Should I get her a friend her age? Integrate her faster with the older chickens?? Help!!!
