    I am going to have a coop for my Jersey Giants and a coop for my silkies (and if my peafowl hatch one for them [​IMG]) but thatll come later in the year.
    I was wondering if any of you have done this...
    I am going to keep the Giants and Silkies in different coops and runs but to save space I was thinking of putting a coop at each end and dividing the middle of the run.

    Has anyone done this? Pictures?
    Any other ideas on how to do this?

    That's exactly what I did. My chickens have the east gate of the run for free range exit. My silkies (they're not chickens) have the west gate access to the to my side and back yard because they don't destroy plants, flowers, grass or anything like chickens do.

    See my BYC page for pictures.

    Edit: BTW, there are no pictures of the three-foot fence that I put in the run to separate the silkies' one-third of the run's area from the chickens' larger section.
