    I know my subject post sounds strange, but I have a Polish Crested pullet with a deformed leg that I took in along with the other 10 hens I acquired. She had almost no feathers when we got her and the other pullets were pecking her until she bled, so I separated her, she's gained weight, grown her feathers, and I thought it might be nice to find her a companion. I'm new to the chicken scene, so I dont know if she needs a companion or not, but when we took her out of the run to sit with us, she peeped louder and louder the farther away from the other chickens we got which made me think she wanted to be around them. I just want her to have a buddy.

    Hiya! I would suggest you get a couple of fairly young chickens, like 6 or 7 weeks, and give them to her. They'll naturally grow up to her being head-hen and leave her alone. She'll have good companions that way.
