    John thats awesome......are you going to use 2 coops or just the new one? I guess with 2 you can keep the roosters seperate. My rooster population is growing too [​IMG] Thats a story for the shop [​IMG]

    I am going to use both coops, with 23 hens I think everyone can get along.

    Of all the people I have spoke to locally here they all said that all the silver laced that they got from the local feed stores were Roosters.

    I know that I ended up with 2 Silver Laced Roosters and thats all I ordered. Glad I didnt order more than that.
