And thats what i plan to start with here... im partial to keeping them separated by breed so i dont get cross bred birds, but id be nice to keep em together instead of separate coops all over the yard... They are pure breeds and higher quality birds already so i hate to ruin that... then i can end up selling birds as better quality... and manage them better...
How big of coop do i need and how big of run do i need? Im thinking 4 sqft per bird in the run?
What features are excellent to have in a coop and what do you wish you had?
Do yall light birda up for longer days to keep them laying or keep them on natural light only?
Planning my coop build here... trying to figure out how im going to do it...
