I am a new chicken keeper, and have a flock of 8 different birds I purchased as day old chicks back in March. Two of the chicks turned out to be roosters: a black silkie and a bantam buff brahma. (The rest: buff orpington, black australorp, RIR, partridge cochin, white leghorn, and brown leghorn). The roosters are friendly and all the flock gets along pretty well, but I'm not ready for fertilized eggs or chicks, as I'm still new at this. I have enough space to keep the roosters (we live on 2 acres of land), and am thinking I'd get a pair of hens in each breed for the roosters (possibly next spring). For now I'm wondering how I can house the current flock so that when my hens start laying (which should be in the next few weeks), I won't have any unplanned broods. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
