Ok my husband and I spent the day dividing up the shed he got me 2 weeks ago into seperate coops for my new babies. it is 16 foot long, so he did 5 different area's. 1 is almost 4' wide the rest are each 3' wide. and they are each 6 foot long. Here's my problem, I wanted to sperate the silkies by color, I need 2 of the areas, 1 for my frizzle and a few none frizzled siblings, and 1 for my 3 EE's. that leaves me 3 pens. I have 3 white, 2 blue, 2 black, 1 splash, 1 Part., silkies hatched, and a bunch of buffs in the bator with more whites. I was wondering if I can pen the blue, black, and splashes together or would this mess up the colors if I were to try to hatch eggs later. None are even close to laying yet they were just hatched in Nov. My husband is saying I have to pick 3 colors of the silkies and sell the rest, I am hoping I won't have to do this but I guess I might. I really love the part. silkie but only have 1 not sure what color to pen this one with til I figure out thier gender.
