Quick run down. I already have an area for my production Reds. 20 more eggs in the bator. Need to double my egg out put. Getting 10 Heritage RIR's, 25 Heritage Delawares and 25 good bloodline Light Brahmas. Which will all have there separate areas for breeding. So I'm going to need a juvenile area. Now like most people I'm not made of money so I try to keep it simple but effective. My question is should I section off the juvenile area? And if so how many stages? Do I really need a hen type house for each stage? I live in SC so they go outside in 2-3 weeks. As soon as they get there feathers. Never had a problem with this. When I get my other 3 breeds this won't be a problem because they can go right to there designated area. But when I start breeding and hatching that's what the problem comes to play. So i need an area where I can keep them separate for around 16-18 weeks. Or until I think they can handle being moved with the grown ups. I learn a lot here so look forward to everybody's suggestions.
