    We have had "normal" chickens for quite awhile, but we are getting into Yokohamas now, too. I want to keep them separate of course, and I believe they would benefit from different accomodations than my Wellies, EE's etc. due to their long tails. I don't want to start all over again next year. Would like to construct 2 coops & 4 runs this summer for our Yoko breeding project. Next year is hopefully going to be "expansion" year, not start over again. [​IMG]ANY & ALL input would be greatly appreciated!!

    The main thing there is a high enough roost so their tail can hang off ground.
