So, I'm going to divide my coop. One side will be for my layer flock. The other side will be for meat birds.
My layer flock will be around 12 or 14 hens. Meat birds, I'll probably only raise 10 or 12 at a time.
The coop is 12' by 12'. I feel like the layers should have more space than the meaties, but I don't know why I think that. Partly because of the need for next boxes, although they don't take up much space as it is.
Also, each half of the coop will have it's own outdoor run, but one will be bigger than the other. Which flock should have the bigger run?
