I have inherited a small coop (about 6x9) and was thinking of making breeding cages in it so I'm looking for suggestions/advice to do or what not to do ... what worked - what didn't etc. . . In addition to breeding pens - in the off season I'm thinking about separating the roos I keep and letting one out with the ladies to free range a day or week ... etc. (haven't really thought through it yet). so here's what I have to work with: (I used "paint" program - so be imaginative) I'm thinking along the lines of a pen on either side of the door (maybe even 2 or 3 pens high ( and the higher pens could be just for individual roos ) until it's their turn here's what I'm thinking (same thing on the "blue" side ... as there is on the "red" ) but I haven't really planned food/waters or flooring ... and the front/back won't actually be wire - they'll be the solid walls of the shed. and the bottom pens will have doors to open up into their outside pens (not quite sure how I'm going to do that either - probably a pully that will open/shut the doors because I won't be able to reach in and open/close them) ... and they will have separate pens out the back.
