5 years ago I started out with 4 chickens. Unfortunatly last week the thrid one died leaving one of my ladies all alone. I have since bought a new friend for my remaining chicken in the hope that she will have a friend to keep her company and someone to snuggle up to on colder nights. However, my origional chicken has yet to stop pacing and squarwking when left in the pen with the newcommer. The new hen pays little attention to her behaviour and will only give the occasional peck when food is given. When the new hen is removed the origional chicken calms down. Am i doing the right thing leaving her in there when it appears to be stressing her out? I have genuine reasons for the introduction but im worried that i will do more harm than good if this continues. Any advice?
