So, I nonchalantly mentioned to dh, that I want to purchase a bator & bantie hatching eggs. He said "That's fine" I also mentioned to dh that I may want a seperate coop/run (we live on 3/4 acre in our metro area) & he said "No, I'm not having chicken coops scattered around my yard." So, I figured I better not push my luck, quite yet and see if I can have my standards & banties coexist peacefully. Currently, I have a 4wk old flock & thought maybe next Spring I would attempt hatching a few banties. The option of expanding my run & coop are a possibility as well. What are your experiences in combining the two? TIA!
