I raise chickens as pets with egg laying benefits. I live in a city that only allows 6 chickens. I started with three pullets and ended up with 2 hens and 1 rooster. I had to get rid of the rooster so then ended up with only two. I know that 2 is a bad number and did not want to just have 2. Anyway..... Last night I heard death cries from the coop. By the time I opened the font door it was too late. I watched a dog running off with one of my lovely pets in its mouth. I will never forget that horrible sound running down the street. Now I have one terrified chicken left and I don't know what to do. The coop is very secure and safe I just made a HORRIBLE mistake and didn't latch the door shut all the way. I have a small coop and run and am worried about introducing a new bird because mine are so tame. I handle them daily and they follow me around the yard. Should I find a bullied hen that is being re-homed? I was going to order chicks this spring. Should I wait until then and then add the juveniles in when they are old enough? How long can she be alone before I have a really lonely sad chicken?
