    What should I do with the Ameraucana hen when the Rooster is gone? Are chickens good by themselves or should I get her a friend??? I posted before this about the leghorn rooster...

    Oh, must have friend! Or it at least would make you feel better, but probably her too. :aww

    Would an adult hen be better for her or a juvenile? I'm really new at all of this!

    I would say to try and get one (or two.....)about the same size. Chickens are extremely social animals and need other chickens for companionship. I love watching my hens "talk" to one another...you can tell they genuinely want, need, and enjoy eachother.

    Do you think it would be possible to get rid of your rooster there? Sorry for crossing your threads here, just popped into my head when I read that. [​IMG]
