    Ok, I think these 4H projects are going to kill me! my daughter has chosen some bantam breeds to show for 4H next fair. There are 3 types that she wants and she wants to show them in pairs. Now we have a small coop for my flock, which I already want to add to, lol. But Im thinking that she needs to have "her own" coop for her project birds. Since she wants to show pairs would it be best to have 3 seperate areas for each breed? And if she gets a roo of each how many hens per roo should she have? She is wanting to get Blue Silkies, Mottled Cochins, and Barred Cochins. We will should be moving in about a month so I want to figure out the best way to set up our "chicken land", and of coarse she wants to show a pair of Cayuga ducks and they will have their own area too.

    Any suggestions on a set up would be great or an easier way to keep everyone happy would be great!

    Thank you
