So my stray chicken is still with us. Lulu has been a member of the household for 2 months exactly today. I have been half heartedly looking for other chickens to put with Lulu should Lulu turn out to be a hen. (yes I STILL have no clue what sex this chicken is no eggs, no crowing, nothing). We went to a feed mill that sometimes has chickens. I inquired about other birds so that Lulu can have a companion. And the lady told me that their season had ended but then... She tells me "You shouldn't get another chicken yours will be nicer if you don't" Everything I have read and understand tells me that these birds are social and should come in groups of 3 or more. So I have no idea. Is there any weight in what the feed mill employee told me? Right now Lulu has an attitude problem and has been pecking us when we try pick her/him up to put her/him in the pen or nighttime cage. So I don't need that behavior to get any worse.... especially since technically Lulu belongs to a 4 year old girl.
