    I am going to be adding on this spring and building two big coop's with big runs. Like the one I have now and also a few smaller pens.
    I have 12 leghorn girls that I would like to get a red Roo for and also I would like to have 2 roo's and a few hens of the same breed to put in the same coop with the leghorns.
    So there would be 20 total 18 hens and 2 roos together.
    I can't deside , RIR , or New Hamp. This is so I'll have pure with the brown eggs and I'll know that my white eggs will be sex-link.
    Any help would be great.
    My game roo will not be happy but he has too many ladies. [​IMG]

    My RIR roo was very mean. He is no longer with us, a hawk got him before I did!

    I think that I'm going to go with something different.
    Welsummers, so now the questions is will two wels roo get along with 18 ladies? The coop will be big inside is 14 x 16 out side is 14 x 30.

    I think you'll have to try it and find out. Some are okay together and some kill eachother.
