    I'm trying to decide what way to go.[​IMG] I will be doing a complete revamp of my facilites and I'm trying to decide a plan fro the housing. Ithink I'm pretty sure what I'm doing as far as runs. I will need to house.

    2 trios on bantam buff cochins
    1 pair bantam white cochins
    6 Standard laying hens (Cochins and Buff OrphintonX Buff leghorn)
    6-8 babies to grow out

    Thanks for any input I know this is a reoccuring subject but I'm most interested in those who eparate for breeding pures.

    Thanks. I'm looking for separate runs/coops for each breeding pair or breed.

    Bump... anyone? I'm pulling my hair out trying to design a breeder coop for 25 Dorkings, several silkies and several lt brahmas. Anyone have any suggestions, or tips as to what to avoid?

    Here is one of mine I use for silkies when I want some of their eggs.

    And this is my grow out one I mainly use for broilers. The plywood flat on top isn't the best, but it was the easiest in order to get in and get the birds at the end.

    we're picking the one above up today, still unsure whats going in there

    My dad will be building one more just like that this summer for our mille fleur d'uccles.

    We also have one smaller that is housing our bantam barred rocks, I'll try to get a picture of it up later!
