Breeding Houses and Dedicated Coops

By SparkyCrows, May 19, 2014 | Updated: May 20, 2014 | |
  1. SparkyCrows
    At last count I had 20 different potential living areas to house my birds - some dedicated to a specific flock and others for temporarily housing sub-sets of birds. I keep my broodies, my elderly, and my super itty bitties separate from the free-range flocks. There are two free-range houses where harems co-habitat overnight. What space is left over is used for seasonal projects.

    Here's the run down for May 2014
