    Baby went to a new home a couple days ago. (he was a hatch from June of 2011)

    I have only my blue slate hen left. She is with all the other poultry: chickens, and a couple ducks. They have a couple acres to roam on.

    Will she be ok with those around her or should I get another hen so she will have a friend that is same breed as her?

    No more males for me, so please don't suggest that.[​IMG]

    I have found my turkeys really like hanging out together. Does your hen "hang out" with any other bird? or is she a loner? I think if it was my pet I would consider a friend for her.
    Curious to your male problem? Mine all seem very gentle... I only had problems once when there was too much competition for mates. Can you teach me something about "boy" problems?
