We are new chicken keepers. We had a small flock of four silver laced Wyandotte hens and one rooster. They free range during the day and are 27 weeks old. Today I heard a bunch of clucking and went out to find my rooster missing, just feathers left on the other side of the fence so I've locked the rest up in the run, but what next? We really want to let them continue free ranging but can't lose the rest. We were planning on letting them hatch a few extra chicks next year, now that can't happen. Should we keep them locked up for a few day? How can we add another rooster in? We were really lucky that he was such a nice rooster and was a real gentleman with the ladies. We live in NH and winter is right around the corner so I'm not sure how we could quickly raise another. Any advice is appreciated!
