I've got 8 brown coturnix (2 roosters) and 10 A&M's of unknown sex (will know a week or so hopefully). They are in a 15 square foot cage rabbit hutch and that is probably where they will stay for good. I'm really just using them for eggs now until I get an incubator. I want to keep some roosters for that time. I'll probably just let them interbreed until I get more serious about it. Should I keep my hen/cock ratio normal for now (3-4 to 1) or maybe cut back to just a couple and then breed to get more? I realize with the small number of birds I have now I will have to get more outside blood, but I don't want to cut down so small that I can't breed you know. Heck, I don't know lol? I guess what I'm asking is if you guys had 18 birds (2 known cocks) in 15 square feet and you wanted to breed later on, what would you do? I know the cage is a little small, but I keep it clean and I have a small cage that a few of them can get out on the ground in so they are alright. Hope someone can make some sense of all this lol.
