I currently have 3 hutches that are about 2'X3' each. I have a total of 3 males and 8 females right now. (One male per cage) To hopefully make my life easier and their life better I plan on building an aviary that will be 14' feet long and 4-5' wide. A two foot wide section will be for a "safety door" (so there is a double set of doors to prevent escapes) and to store food etc. This leaves them with about 60 square feet. I know I *could* put as many as 60 in that area, but that seems really densely stocked to me, I was thinking 24... would I still keep a 1:3 or 1:4 male to female ratio with them all in the same area like that? How do those of you that have set ups like this go about collecting eggs? I will provide them with nest box areas, but from experience I know they'll only use them some of the time... especially if there are lots of other hidey places for them. Are there any other things that have arisen from making a switch like this that I'm not thinking of?
