Yes chickens are also known to display mourning behavior when another chicken in the flock dies, and they will show signs of depression if they are removed from the flock and placed in solitary quarters.
Answer to e.) : The social hierarchy of chickens is called pecking order.
"The pecking order is a natural process that chickens have to work out among themselves. This order of social dynamics determines the status of individual birds of a flock and their roles. The pecking order has an influence on many chicken activities such as feeding, drinking, egg laying, roosting, crowing, mating and even dust bathing. Stronger members of a flock are ranked at the top of the pecking order, while more submissive or physically weaker birds are placed lower in the order. Alpha roosters who are healthy will crow to signal their dominance to the other chickens and often take on the job as head of the flock. Roosters who are the flock leader will look out for the hens by watching for predators, find them treats, mating and chasing other roosters away from the hens. Roosters and cockerels lower in the pecking order do not crow or breed with hens when the rooster higher than they are is around. Hens high in the pecking order are known to chase other hens out of nest boxes that they favor. The higher ranking chickens get to eat more while the lower ranking members usually wait or move out of the way until the higher placed chickens have had their fill. Chickens with higher status in the pecking order get to choose where they will roost, leaving the other chickens to take whatever roosts are left."
This is an image of a trivial oil on canvas painting of a porcelain rooster figurine and two eggs.that occupied my attention for a couple of mornings.
I learn from the Internet that a rooster is just a chicken, after all. "A rooster is a male gallinaceous bird which is also known as a cockerel or cock, with cockerel being younger and rooster being an adult male chicken (Gallus gallus domesticus). ... The rooster is polygamous, but cannot guard several nests of eggs at once." I'm sure foxes are aware of that!
Bird Art Print from an Original Watercolor Painting. A rooster needs to be colorful to attract hens. This male has iridescent blue & brown feathers, a large red cockscomb on his head & red wattles & spurs under his beak. Long, shiny golden hackle feathers on his neck & saddle are puffed up to impress his potential mate.
"Rooster" refers to an adult male chicken. This name didn’t appear until 1772. Before that, an adult male chicken was called a "cock".
A young and resourceful chicken with moderately leafy eyebrows and beautifully ruffled feathers casts a wide-eyed gaze upon the myriad of potential amusements available in such a colorful confetti-swirled barnyard and on such a warm and sunny day.
