Seven weeks ago I bought 12 one day olds of multiple breeds for my new 6 x 6 coop. I planned for possible casualties, and to cull one of the two cockerels. My goal was for 7 hens and a rooster. Several of the pullets are fairly small (2 golden campines, 2 Lakenvelders). Fortunately they all are healthy. The problem: MY COOP IS TOO SMALL and I don't want to get rid of any of them. I'd at least like to watch them reach laying size, and to see the color of the 3 EE's eggs. At what point will I know it is time to reduce the size of my mini-flock? Do you think I can wait till they start laying before I start culling? I plan to have their 16 x 16 run complete in a couple of weeks, but for now they can't go outside. Oh, BTW the 2 Golden Campines are getting pecked on and I have been spraying their backs with BluCoat.
