    20191109_061429.jpg 20191011_061458.jpg 20191017_183701.jpg Hello... We just moved in May to 5 acres of property outside of Jacksonville, Fl and just had to add chickens. Currently we have 3 Cornish Rocks (1rooster & 2 hens). 9 chickens in 1 flock that have 2 roosters and 8 in another younger flock with 1 rooster so far. I want to join them together because of shelter and laying boxes. That way they all have the same access. Is this possible???

    Hello and welcome to BYC! :frow Glad you joined.
    Generally, having that many sub-flocks means you will need different shelters or divisions within the same shelter for each sub-flock. If you have a very large run or pen (like 1/2 acre or more with lots of trees and shrubs in it) they can all coexist without too many fights between the boys over territory.
