Ok does anyone keep just a pen of roo's together , the reason why is I have about 8 different kinds of heavy breed Roo's, (Why you ask I keep 8 different breeds and not make chicken soup out of them ) well the reason if these are my very first and I'm trying to produce my own bard yard special Dual Purpose heavy- colorful - bird . Yes I see there a large asstorment of colors - sizes- and breeds but just looks to produce my own while I rasing chickens for eggs and meat for the family and plus it's seems to be a growing hobby also just to see what ? would by crossing what ? would it look and turn out and what would egg productions be from the crosses . any way back to my question , how many Roo's can be keep together and what size run and pen should I keep them in .....................At one time or another they where together but not all at the same time , at this present time 3 are with the egglaying hens -2 are by themself -1 is with the x-rock hens - and the 2 are in with the bantams ,roo's and hen run. I want to build a small coop and run just for these Roo's plus a few others that I am rasing form the mix breed patch , as I get to many then I will butcher -n- turn them into chichen soup LOL yep i'm chick crazy Thanks Ya'll Al.
