I hope this is in the right topic catergory. Well, we're going tonight and getting a shed that I am converting into a coop. I have : 1 - 1 yr old frizzle bantam cochin roo 2 - batam cochin pullets And whatever ends up hatching out of my 2 1/2 dozen eggs in the bator (minus whatever I give away) EE's, Ameraucanas & large size "designer chickens" If I house everyone together for the first year - until next spring when I can more easily afford to build more seperate pens/runs.... will they get along ok even if some end up being roos? Will the cochin have an upper hand for being the oldest from the get-go? Or will the youngsters dominate him first chance they get? The shed is pretty large. I don't have exact measurements.... I think it's 8 x 8, maybe a little larger. It's expandable. So next year I should be able to hunt down additional pieces and make it longer if need be. I also have plans to turn some wood pieces I have into a bantam coop and run for Spaghetti and his girls and whatever other bantams I end up with along the way It'll house 3 seperate trios nicely Do think I will be ok until Spring of '09? Or should I get it done sooner than later?
