So it's getting close to chick season and my dad and brother in law want to do some broilers this year ( I want to try it too). I have 2 chicken pens. One is 20x30 and houses all my layers (17 plus a barred rock rooster) and I will be adding chickens to it this year too. The other is 20x20 and houses 3 silkies and 1 silkie rooster. I also have two smaller pens which I have extra silkie roosters in that I am trying to get rid of. So my question is could I raise the broilers in the silkie pen or would that not work? We are turning our old greenhouse into a brooder and so I figured I could keep all the chicks in there (broilers and layers) for several weeks and then move them all to the silkie pen as kind of a grow out pen because they will still be fairly small. Then move the layers into the layer pen and leave the broilers with the silkies. I can imagine there will be problems seperating food and stuff but this is the only idea I can come up with. Any suggestions? Thanks!
