rooster - what to do
We only had 2 hens and 1 rooster. Our dog got into their coop. She killed the 2 hens and attacked the rooster. My question is what do we do now? Do we get him some hens, how many, when to get them and how to introduce them to him? The ladies down the road said they would sell us some laying hens. Or do we give him away? Right now he looks sad and I'm sure it's going to take him some time to recover from the trauma. He is a very nice rooster so I would kind of hate to give him away. Or will he be alright for the winter by himself until we can get chicks in the spring? Thanks for any and all suggestions!
