    I have a barn and one stall is for my frizzle cochin bantam and his hens and another stall is caged bantam pairs. About 10 pairs. I will put the frizzle cochin bantam and his hens out when it dries up. I have water and mud everywhere from all the rain. Another stall is divided into 4 pens, and I currently have 14 juvenile roo's in one of them - cochins - and 4 frizzle crosses that will be sold. We plan to build about 5 runs so we can put more out. I have lights in all the stalls.
