    hello. i was wondering if anybody had a good coop design for separating different breeds. My family really wants to get different breeds and keep them in separate coops.
    thanks

    They really only need to be kept separate during breeding season, but yes, our barn has three or four stalls, plus we have small grow out pens and breeding pens. This allows for maximum flexibility.

    We'll be breeding heritage Rhode Island Reds, production reds, and heritage Barred Rocks and production Barred Rocks in spring. We also have a flock of commercial type layers.

    Oh my. We balloon to over 200 birds in summer, on our three farms. But, we dial that back to about 90-100 birds to carry through the winter. The rest go in the freezer. LOL
