    I'm considering building a bachelor pad for my roosters and have a few questions. Should I keep it certain distance away from the hens' coop/run? Is it okay for them to see the hens' area {not share a fence line or anything}, or could that stir up trouble between the boys? Will hearing the hens stir up trouble among them? Any and all advice is greatly appreciated.
