I have spent countless hours looking for information on housing breeders and can't seem to find anything that will even come close to answering my questions so I am going to give this site a try. I am setting up a small hatchery and want to know the best way to house/cage my breeders. I am only planning on having about 10 different breeds for now and an inexpensive way to get started and my feet wet. Here are my questions. 1. What is the best yet inexpensive way to house my breeders? I would like to put 6 - 8 hens in a cage with a rooster and a wire floor for easy cleaning. 2. If I use a cage system, how big should ach be? 3. Lighting requirements and window requirements? 4. Where can I see pictures or small hatcheries?
