this spring we are going to be adding to our list of breeds, and would like to be able to keep the breeds seperate so that we can have pure bred eggs, does anyone have a coop that is one building, divided (not nec. into thirds) with seperate runs for each??? i can't find a picture of one, and i know that one must exist! thanks!!!

I *think* Ms.-AK-Bird-Brain was making a breeders' coop somewhat like this. Here is her thread about her coop: https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=47991

We have one breeders coop...and are currently working on another. This is the only pic I have right now...but there are 4 inside pens...with runs.This is the smaller coop. Its 10 x 20 The inside pens measure approximately 6 x 4. large enough for 6 chickens.( 2 pens are 6 x 6 )

They are seperated by chicken wire...with screen over that at roost level. This keeps them from pecking through at each other.
The new coops is 12 x 30 and will have 4 pens as well....just more chickens per pen! The new pens will be approx. 8 x 6 with room left over for a storage closet. Still working on that coop. Its been a long summer.
