I have ordered 24 chicks from Ideal. They will arrive here in April. I have to wait on the Barnevelders. I ordered the following: (4 of each) Ameraucanas (EE's) Australorps Barnevelders Delawares Barred Hollands Salmon Faverolles I am going to build 3 coops each measuring 4x8 giving me 32 square feet per coop. So only 8 hens per coop. I have never built anything like this in my life, and I am very unsure of myself being able to build a large walk in coop. So how would ya'll seperate each breed to go in each coop? Also, they will be all sharing the same run. If you put 8 hens in each coop will they always go back to their original coop?
