I've looked for information on this but no luck. I want to know how many coops I need to manage a colony. I just put 49 Jumbo Bobs in my incubator. After those that hatch and mature become established. I want to select a male and a few hens for breeding so I will set aside a separate pen for these. ~~ Question: Can I successfully house more than one hen together in the breeder pen? But I heard somewhere that if I hatch and introduce chicks (replacement birds) into the colony they're likely to be killed by the mature Bobs so do I need to wait until they mature?...and therefore need a third cage??
