Hi all. I have had two barred rocks in my backyard for the last month. Everything was going great until we hit a week of 100+ degree weather. Sadly my smaller hen succumbed to the heat and passed away. Now I'm left with her sister as a solitary hen. I want to so what is best for her but I'm not sure if I should introduce new birds. Here are my main questions and concerns: Will she be unhappy being the only chicken or would she prefer companions in other hens? (Obviously after proper quarantine and proper introductions) If I do want to add chickens, I'm assuming I would have to bring in at least 2 new hens. Would it be better to start raising chicks or should I try to find adult chickens to introduce? Any advice, suggestions and answers are greatly appreciated!
