"Mom, We Need Another Chick!"

In the mornings when Flower Muffin goes into the laying box to do her thing, this girl gets a squawking. 


"Bawk, BAWK, BAWK"



As soon as I come out the door she is the perfect angel.


Looking for bugs.


"Yes, mom I am lonely while Flower Muffin lays her egg."


I know she is telling me she needs a buddy when Flower Muffin is not in her sight. Chickens sure are social creatures. Or maybe she is just doing that plain old egg song letting me know an egg is being laid.

Ah, that's so sweet, they're best friends! Does she lay eggs, too?

Awwww yes all birds, that's their "flock" mentality. Time for another chick. :) xo

Chickens are very social and really do need companions. I hate to tell you -- but if you get another chick, you should probably get 2, because solitaries rarely thrive and it will take a while for old chicken and new chicken to get along together and integrate.

Hi Elaine. I have a barred rock, too, and 9 other hens. My BR looks so much prettier this year. Last year she had pale chick feathers, but after she moulted they came in nice black and white. Yours is so pretty. I could easily become a chicken hoarder.

Aw she is lonely! My friends have three chickens and they seem very happy!
hugs, Linda

Kris said...

Friendly girls but really busy, all the time.

Hi Elaine......maybe a window in the laying box so she can see her 'BBF' at all times and talk through the window..

You know you can't buy just 1 chick right? Have to have 2 or more, for company :)

Vilken söt höna, synd att jag inte kan ha höns på kolonin. Vi får inte ha andra djur än katt och hund ev kaniner.
Ha en fin helg
Kram Meta
