Choc,
Thank you, your post brings up a concern of mine. The concentration of all my birds in one place, in one coop in fact. Hopefully I will produce enough quality birds this year to get some folks started in them, insurance against some potential catastrophic event.

Nicamarvin, as stated above I am a one coop operation here. I don't think it is a matter of size, although additional coop space would be fantastic. In my case I think persistance or maybe bullheadedness is the key factor.
