The pen is 6ft long and 3ft deep with a sand box and a laying box/retreat. I have 7 hens and now 2 males in the pen. I've been getting tons of eggs from them (natural light), but would really like this new male to breed with the hens. He's absolutely gorgeous and the only male I have in that particular mutation.
I could always separate the aggressive hens, but it's the perfect group to get the mutations I want.
I know my male to female ratio isn't textbook ideal, but I know it can be done. I have other pens with 3 males and 5 hens. They have NO issues whatsoever, no aggression and the hens are in perfect feather.
Any tips or tricks would be greatly appreciated!
