The yard is 20-by-16 ft. for 30 birds.

Thanks!!!!  :)

I work on my family farm of 50-dairy, tie-stall. Have two Collies and eight cats. Grow a half-acre garden of veggies and another acre of fruit trees and bushes.

Your run meets the bare minimum in terms of space. You've got just about 10.6 sq ft per bird. Most dual-purpose breeds, and very active birds need about 12 sq ft per bird. Rocks, in particular, are very active and inquisitive birds that can get bored easily. Lots of room and things to do are essential for keeping them happy.
