    It looks like I'm gonna have to separate some of my roos but I'm not sure how to house each one. I'd love to get some ideas from what you seasoned chicken folks have come up with for your roos.

    Can you post a few pics? Pretty please? [​IMG]

    TIA!!

    We're using old rabbit hutches for our extra roos.

    This one has a plywood floor with pine shavings...

    These 2 have hardware cloth floors so we use hay on the floors to keep their feet off the wire...

    Hope this helps!

    My little roosters all run together! Some squabbles at first but then pecking order established... If they can't get along I move them to another pen...
    It seems a shame to keep them caged up... I just give them lots of room to hang out in barn and pens....
    I name my pens accordingly... The retirement home, playpen, socially challenged etc.....

    I go to auction 2 times a month and little banty roosters can sell for 50 cents! No one seems to want more than one or two.

    Yes I have alot of hens mixed in but WAY more roosters.....
