we actually have 2 roosters, a Brahma, and a little cochin. she is a Bantam. i wanna say cornish game hen bantam? but that could easily be wrong. we also have 2 ameracauna hens that the 2 roosters and hen will NOT accept into their flock.
we do have a coop. and the hen is over a year old. the majority of the time our chickens are free range all the time. but we do put them in the coop, most nights. however when they do not go in the coop the roosters, and hen perch on the porch rail by the door, and the 2 hens sleep with the goats.
probably not the most ideal setup but it works around here as there isn't alot of dangers in our area, we rarely get possums, skunks, or raccoons. and we RARELY get snakes at all. so it works for us, but i definitely wouldn't recommend leaving chickens out at all times.
