    I have 27 red stars in a coop all hens 6 weeks old, 6 buff orps in another coop 10 weeks old one is a roo. I recently acquired 5 barred rocks 3 day old all hens (supposedly). In a couple of months I will have to decide which coop gets the barred rocks. Both coops and run have ample room. Any thoughts? Thanks!

    The stars will be closer in size but no matter which one you put them in they are going to be picked on a bit while they establish their spot in the pecking order. I can tell you that I've had red sex links, buff orpingtons, barred rocks and EEs all in the same coop and run and they all got along fine, so it should work out just fine either way.
