    I'm thinking I'd like a set-up for separating a half dozen breeds for hatching eggs. I have plenty of land, and would have to start from scratch for the facility.

    They already have free range and a coop that is set up for both summer and for wintering, but I'm looking to put up something for providing hatching eggs, with a shelter to close up at night and a grassy run. Like several next to each other?

    It doesn't have to be winterized, but we might add that feature in the future. ie: warmth. We're in Michigan.

    I'd be grateful for any links or pictures anyone could send us.
    Thanks!

    ILOVEFRIZZLES has a nice set-up for multiple breeds. Hers is very open (living in GA), but with a few modifications it would work good for northern climates.
