    LinckHillPoultry Chillin' With My Peeps

    Okay. I am getting some malays. 2 roosters and 3 hens. My poultry book says theyre docile, well... I read up on them, and found out they can get a little brutal to other chickens. So now I am going to build another chicken pen for them, I really want them because they look so neat and I would love raising something like them and breeding them. Any suggestions on the dimension of the pen? I can't find too much on it anywhere on the web. I also read that the hens dont very often lay eggs, and that they have a hard time getting into a standard laying box. So what size should the laying box be? Does anyone have any good links to the answer to these questions, or has anyone raised these birds before?
    Thanks.
