    Will you be locking them in at night? They do have to figure out where home is. Are the sheds close to each other?

    Then I would say no problem. I had two coops briefly when I was integrating two groups of adults. Sometimes they would mix themselves up other times they stayed in the original. So I don't see any problem with it. If somebody does maybe they will say something.

    With 2 coops they may decide which to go into at night.
    Even if you lock them separately for a week or so to 'home' them to the coop that you want them in.....
    ......all birds may end up in the same coop, which could be an overcrowding situation,
    depending on how many bird and how big the sheds are.
