We are about 1.5 years into caring for both broilers and layers and one thing that we have discovered is that when we have multiple mobile coops spread across multiple fenced areas, our work is greatly increased (doubled if we have 2, tripled if we have 3, etc).
To try and combat this, we are wondering what will happen if we put two coops in the one fenced area? Specifically, at night will the chickens naturally split between the two coops, is there going to be differences in behaviors between the broilers and the layers?
We could just make a larger coop, but we are at the edge of what we can manually move by hand, plus we already have a number coops and don't want to replace them.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
