Ok so last year I started with 3 varieties of birds who ended up being all male or never laying even at a year old. Some ended up in the freezer. Some were rehomed in the hope they would lay for someone else. I started fresh this year. I got 2 free roosters who are mystery breeds. One died and the remaining one is a feather footed beauty. He is so handsome and HUGE. I also have 4 laying hens I bought who were labeled as new hamshire reds. Then I bought babies the first batch were BO's BR's RIR and Brown leghorns. I am pretty sure out of those 8 I have 4 roosters. Those will probably end up dinner unless they really impress me. Ok well then there were more babies. This time a silkie and SLW's. Out of these 6 I think I got 2 hens and my mystery silkie who is staying here no matter what. And then there were more babies. 6 polish chicks. 1 died and the other 5 are a mystery but I am pretty sure one is a male. Not positive but its a gut feeling. I have one large coop thats 15x20 and it has 6 nesting boxes. I have 1 separate 2 story coop that has 2 "apartments" in it that is currently holding older chicks ( teenagers) Fenced in outdoor run that can be expanded during the planting off season and will be sown with foraging friendly green manure crops. I know I am going to want more birds and probably more varieties because i can't seem to help myself so how will this all work? What do I need to build. I have 2 sizes of birds so I am sure they will need to be separate which is no issue. Can they be in the run together? Anything I need to look out for? Right now everyone is kept separate until I am sure no one has brought something unhealthy with them but eventually all need to live together. Right now I don't intend to hatch eggs simply because I can't give the time I feel like I would need to do that. Any breeds that could not cope with this kind of mixing? Oh and I forgot there are also 4 geese sharing space atm. I am in deep consideration of getting a rainbow layers mix next baby season. bad idea?
