    Dont know if this has been asked before on the forum (probably has,but I have missed it )and I hope you dont think its a silly question but my problem is I am only allowed a certain number of houses on the land,and as I have a number of different breeds and want to keep them pure would it be possible to keep say about 6 roos in the same house together and the hens together and put the roos with their partners periodicaly,I have worked out to put a brown egg layer with a white or different sizes so that I know whos eggs are whos. Will this regime work????

    That's how I have mine set up. I actually have not yet removed/reintroduced a cockerel yet, but I have 7 of them living peacefully together. More peacefully than the hens.
