anyone have any ideas
I know I saw a threat here recently about breeding, seperate coops and pens but I can't seem to find it now. Check the threads here, if I find it, I will post it to you.
how many chicken do you have or planning to have ? Or how many breeds I should ask ?
Quote:Could he free range or are you where that is not possible? I have some chickens in a coop/fenced pen and I have a few chickens and couple of roos I let run free. The free ones roost up in the rafters of my barn at night the natural warmth from the horses in the stalls keep it pretty cdozy for them. Maybe your picked on roo could rule another roost:yiipchick
another thing I have is what I call my hospital pen, made from a dog kennel pen, it is about 6' x 6', only drawback is you can't stand up in it when you go in you have to crouch. I put chicken wire over the top to keep the chickens in and preditors out. it has a roost and heat lamp works well for temporary guest.
Sorry about the your rooster Here is what I've found for you, hope it helps.
I simply made a corner in the big run and put wire up and everything...including a gate to get in. That was for the cochin. Then I found him a couple of girls and things are cosy in the cochin corner.
For the Barred Rock rooster we ended up making a large run and I found him some girls. Then my DH finally gave in and added on to the big coop for the BR flock. Yeah me.
So, now I have the original coop and run with the mixed flock.
A corner in the large run that is the cochin corner and in the spring DH said he would build me ONE MORE large run and coop and that was IT....no more.
And attached to the original coop is the BR's so that made a duplex coop with their own large run.
Chicken math is grand!
Quote:i already have chickens 6 polish, 10 oegb, 5 wellsummer, 4 cochin, 6 americana, 7 RIR, and 12-14 american grey game freeranging.
thats not counting pefowl, guinea fowl, ducks, turkey, and a few feeranging mixbreed chickens but as far as the pen i just need a some simple plans to make a simple pen to put a rooster in temporarily
