Hey all! (New to the forum, and soon to be new to raising chickens!) I am getting started on my new coop and was getting ready to order chicks for a spring ship date. However, I am curious........ I had this great plan on how my coop was to be laid out, how the pen was to be built, etc...... I want egg layers and Cornish X, but don't know if I want to fool with building separate housing.... Since the X's are only here for a few weeks, why can't I keep them together until I process them....... Then maybe next year build another coop for my meaties? If I have to separate them I will, I would just prefer to keep them together. WHY??? TELL ME WHY?!?!?!?! LOL Thanks for the input, and thanks for this forum!
