Honestly I do not have enough reputation to comment on this post:
Step two in the above link says:
Create empty space on a drive. This space needs to be outside any APFS or Core Storage containers.
diskutil list shows:
/dev/disk0 (internal, physical): #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: GUID_partition_scheme *536.9 GB disk0 1: EFI EFI 209.7 MB disk0s1 2: Apple_HFS Chicken 150.0 GB disk0s2 3: Apple_Boot Recovery HD 650.0 MB disk0s3 4: Apple_HFS Turkey 150.0 GB disk0s4 5: Apple_Boot Recovery HD 650.0 MB disk0s5

What would it look like if the space was inside "any APFS or Core Storage containers"?
Continuing with the instruction will "absorb the free space" into a volume which is on an APFS container scheme, which defies the instruction.
Does it matter that the volume to "absorb the free space" is in an APFS type container?
Perhaps I should be trying to change the type to HFS as per the instruction example?
Should there be any other changes that you could make me aware of or shall I continue straight ahead and absorb the free space into JacOS?
I'm hesitant to experiment as there is only one OS.
I appreciate your answers.
