In the Brooder
- Apr 24, 2021
My husband and I are new at this and already making mistakes. We have a 6 month old male jumbo pekin, two 4wk old female Khaki Campbell and one 4wk old male Welsh Harlequin. How to juggle the coop/run for this?
Yes, I've appreciated everyone's input. It's just what we needed.I'd definitely be concerned about the male being so large a breed, and agree he shouldn't be kept with girls in such a drastically different weight class, even if the drake to hen ratio were correct...which it isn't.
If you want to mix breeds...I'd recommend either an all girl or an all boy flock. Or have separate areas and manage them as two separate flocks. Possibly two enclosures?
