I rehomed a rooster and a duck today. (Short story:We live in the city and the roo started crowing - Long story: They are in love so I sent them together). Anyway, my poor Barred Rock has lived with them since she was a baby. She seemed fine until dusk when she couldn't find them. She made the saddest call that about made me cry. She paced the coop desperately and just kept calling out to them. It was TERRIBLE! She finally settled down, but I feel so bad for her. Anyone know how to console a sad hen (or a sad hen owner)? They went to an organic nursery with lots of animals and people so I feel good about their new home. She just sounded so sad, it was awful. Poor baby!
