I'd buy a few 6-8wk old chickens and introduce yours to them.  They shouldn't fight at that age if they've got plenty of space and things to do to occupy them.  If yours turns (or any of the others) turn out to be cockerels then you'll have to dispose of them before they start crowing.  

Interesting discussion here 

If you don't want to face the possibility of 'disposing' of several cocks, my preferred option would be to buy Point of Lay pullets in the spring  - at least you'll be sure you've ot got cockerels.

However, your chick needs company now ...

Why?   They're totally harmless and fascinating to watch.  We get lots of them in our garden as we live surrounded by  the Norfolk Broads.

Good morning all  G'day Pat 

Not as cold as I expected last night ... 10.6C in the back garden and rising now - the sky is wall to wall blue - not a cloud in sight and the low sun is highlighting the fact that the sitting room windows need cleaning inside   I'm not allowed to do the dining room one as it involves stretching across the sideboard ... I did it three days before Wonky's wedding and ended up with a sort of slipped disc and was on high strength painkillers.  Ever since then OH cleans that window ... just one of the benefits of having a younger OH
