I decided today that since I'm home and was going to be working in and around the coops, that I would let both flocks out to free range just to see if they could keep their distance from one another and range peacefully. They didn't. Both flocks consist of one rooster and nine hens each. It wasn't five minutes before the roosters were facing off, hackles flared, and jumping at each other. So, I grabbed the fishnet and caught the one that would be easiest to contain for the day. He was not pleased with the situation. Rather than try to get all the hens in, I left them out and am hoping the girls all go back to their respective coops at roosting time. (These birds were all one big, happy flock last summer and fall before I separated them for the winter. It went down about how I expected, but I had to try anyway.) On the bright side, my wonderful, patient, ever-tolerant of my whims DH put up some shelving for me in one of my coops. The coop itself is 12x8'. The front part is an 8x4' storage area, with an 8x8' living area for the chickens. Anyway, it's a lot more organized than it has been in a long time!
