    I have 16 hens and 8 roosters. I know it's way too many roosters for the amount of hens I have and I also know that I can eat them which is fine with me. My question is, what do I do with them until I can eat them? Do I have to keep them all separate so they don't fight? Can they all be in one coop? If they have to be in separate coops what's the simplest coop I can do for them? can I just do a box frame with hardware cloth? 6 roosters are from a set of Golden sex links that are about 5 weeks old and 2 roosters are from a younger set of orpingtons that are about 1 1/2 weeks old if that makes a difference. I plan on putting the two sets together after they are a bit older. TIA!

    Yesterday I noted their OTHER post was a duplicate. I hope between Bantam Fan and I, someone answers their post.
