    what breeds in particular? not all pens work ideally for all breeds.

    Quote:I am building some breeding pens right now and I am using information from this site. These are 10x10 pens. I am not sure if this is what you are looking for or not. I may build some small brooder size pens for trios and pairs and such for temporary breeding. I do not have information for that but am thinking something like a 3x6 for trios.

    This site has a lot of stuff on it. I am sure you will find the pens I am talking about. 10x10 in a barn. My barn is about the size of his although I am doing 3 pens no 10 or whatever he did.
