I am starting my first flock and have Blue/Black Copper Marans, French Wheaten Marans, Blue/Black Ameraucana, Blue Wheaten Ameraucana, Black Java, Euskal Oiloa Marraduna, laced Brahma, blue/Black Jersey Giants, and some frizzled Polish chicks. I would like the option of breeding the individual varieties. So, how do I keep 9 roosters and 45 hens? Can they coop together until breeding time or will they need to be separated all of the time? Can I have a bachelor area and a hen area until breeding time then separate? Will multiple roosters get along as long as the hens are not around to fight over? I have plenty of space to work with, but I want to have a mixed flock as much as possible. Any suggestions?
