How big should a breeding pen be for a pair or trio of the following breeds?
I have 3 coops/pens with runs right now for my chickens, a LF pen, a duck pen & a banty/grow out pen. I just need to know what I'm going to need for my breeders when the time comes. I'm afraid to get too many roos in my pens due to the fighting issues. Right now there are 3-4 in each pen but only 2 are mature (both in LF pen currently even tho they are banties as they are still way bigger than my banty babies). I'm thinking I may need to leave my roos in the breeder pens even if the girls return to the coop unless I switch out with a roo in their regular pen for breeding.
My silkies will probably end up taking over the banty pen as only a few OEB banties will be left there once I make the breeding pens and I can make them another small coop/run if necessary.
