I mgiht get some layers and meat birds this summer from Cackle Hatchery and they are going to have seperate coops in the barn but I didn't know if they should have seperate pastures or not.....they will be the same age. Should I just build a tractor for the meat birds or can I put the layers and the meat birds in the run together???

This is something I'd like to learn more about too . We have JUST gotten into this ... We've got 10 eight week old chicks we are going to keep for eggs and I've just brought home 8 one day old cornish Rocks I hope to be able to put in the freezer if I don't chicken out

I kept mine together for simplicity's sake. They were fine- the meaties hung together for the most part, I think because they were slower
