Ive just finished my first batch of 20 white rock cornish x. They turned out really well and I was quite pleased with the result. This time I would like to try raising another type of meatbird other than the cornish x. The hatchery closest to me (Freys hatchery, Ontario Canada) has what they call a "dual purpose" which I belive is similar to the "Red Bro" or the "Freedom Ranger". Anyways, I also have a small layer flock of 10 week old hens and a few roosters (two roos soon to be culled) that free range in the day and get locked up at night. It would be nice to do the same with the meatbirds as well, but will they co-exist with my rooster until they get to slaughter weight? I am thinking not. I am currently pondering other options such as a tractor, enlcose the layers in a run, enclose the meatbirds in a run, etc.
