Okay. If I wanted to get some layers and a rooster for eggs and possibly (hopefully) chicks, and also got some broilers, (say a total of 12, 5 hens, 1 rooster, and 6 meat birds) would I need to separate them? They can't both eat the same things, right? And if I got Meatie Roosters, I wouldn't want them to breed with one of my layers, right? Since the broiler/meatie wouldn't give the chicks any good genes, they'd be likely to die early like him? I really want some broilers, but I only want one tractor. I probably need to pick one or the other, huh?
