    I'm building a new coop and I'm going to have to sides to it, where I either keep 2 roosters and hens one side and the same on the other or I keep the roos on oneside and the hens on the other. I just don't know what to do. I'm trying to breed certian hens with certain roosters and the roosters don't seem to get along when the hens are around. So I don't know if I should seperate them completely and join them when I want them to breed or what to do. Or just Seperate which Ones I want to breed with which ones. Any sugestions??

    If you have two sides, I would, take the roo you want to breed, with the hens you want to use and split them up. Them will have to have their own run area though.
