Hello all -- I am a chicken newbie and need your advice ... We recently decided to get some chickens. My plan is to get about 10 meat chicks (cornish rocks), 5 older layers (8 mos+), and 2 turkeys (6 wks old). My DH built me a fine 10 x 12 coop this past weekend and now I need to lay out the interior and run. Hence my questions -- I am guessing that I should divide up the coop so that the chicks can be by themselves (without going outside) for a few weeks. How big of an area do I need for 10 chicks? And many weeks do I keep them in there? Any ideas on how do divide my 10 x 12 coop up? Should I make it into 2 interior rooms with 2 separate outdoor runs? Or once the chicks are old enough to go outside, can the layers/turkey/ meat birds co-exist? Will they all have the same food requirements? Any and all tips/opinions are appreciated. Thanks! Donna Sorry --I posted this earlier to a different index.
