We have 10 3yr old laying hens right now. We are hoping to get about 50 meat birds in a couple weeks to raise through the spring. We have a large coop and pen big enough to hold them all comfortably, but I am wondering about placing the meat birds in with the hens once they are big enough. We had meat birds once before but had no hens at the time. Will they be okay together? Any advice is welcome!
