    I have some silver laced Brahma.2 brothers and 2 separate pullets(hopefully, cuz one is a "pat" right now) . If the 2 I am hoping are really pullets should I make 2 separate breeding pens or let all 4 together?

    I would not have 2 roos together with only 2 girls. Even if the boys don't fight each other they may end up hurting the girls with their competitiveness in mating.
