Ok I am not seeming to find what I am looking for and I am getting impatient. I got 6 pullets last year and they are doing fine, but not laying as many eggs now as when it was warm out. This spring I am thinking or raising some meat birds, just 1 or 2 dozen. I used 2 different plastic totes last spring for my pullets, the second one being a 50 gal one. I thought I heared that you only raise meat birds like 12-16 weeks before butchering. How big of a coop do I need for 24 meat birds? And what would happen if I got a couple of pullets to raise with them to add to my layers that are almost a year old? Sorry for the stupid questions, I don't get on here much, just when I need chicken advise.
