Have 4 hens they have a coop and attached run but I wanted them to have some more sun and help my garden. It's 5ft long 2ft wide and tall. They move around well.

Now make a few more of those and string them together :D

They fit OK in there, but it's pretty tight to leave them in there for too long.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

 

Quoting centrarchid:

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."

I agree they would need a couple of the stringed connected for their to be enough room.
The key to a happy flock is to be there for them. You have to do your job so they can do theirs. Your coop layout is also important. It doesn't have to be fancy just functional.http://www.backyardchickens.com/a/just-a-chicken-coop Is an example of it.

Yeah ... Fine if your right their to move them along ... As you work in the garden ... But don't leave them out there for hours without any water ... Kinda looks like a "Chunnel" ...

Thanks. I out some cloth so 1/2 is shaded and attached water. It's still upper 80's here so the water turns warm in a few hours so I herd em back to the coop with a bigger run. They seem to like to Chunnel since its new pecking area
