Sadly we are now down to one chicken, we started with 4 but over the last couple of years we've lost three - two to illness, one was had by a predator! The last two were very close buddies, did everything together, now she is on her own. She is still a happy hen but I worry that she is lonely. My question is has anyone else had just one hen and did they thrive? We have the opportunity to re-home her with a 4 year old chicken who is on her own but I'm a bit nervous about putting her in strange surroundings and then there's the issue of possibly being picked on.
