I've had such a demand for birds this year that we decided just to try to breed our own. I have a few rooster chicks this time around- and for breeding purposes I obviously need to keep them away from certain hens. Should I just go ahead and separate each breed with their appropriate rooster and have a coop/run for each, or can I just keep the roosters in their own little bachelor coop until I am ready to stick them with the hens for fertile eggs? i can think of a few reasons that make this impossible, and a few that make it seem plausible. What works for you, and what are your thoughts?
