Wanting to hear people's experience with coop size - Page 4

post #31 of 34

I have 11 medium sized hens in a 7X7X7h foot hen house. They have 2 roost bars over a poop pit. During the day the electric door opens to a 4X12X3h Run. In summer I add an electro net for another 4X20X4h run, but not in winter. All the girls seem to get along.

Thank you all for your input! So sorry to just now be getting back to this, the Holiday's have had me running in all different directions. We ended up going with a 10' x 20' run enclosed on top and all sides attached to a 8' x 10' coop and it is working out great! I currently have 29 14 week olds in here, but about a dozen of those are Roosters so I will not be keeping all of them. When all is said and done I should have about 18 in this coop. We are so pleased with how this coop has turned out and is functioning, and the chickens are happy! 

 

Thanks everyone again for your input, and I like hearing about everyone else's coop building experiences!
