Remember to figure in Coop - 4-5 sq.feet per bird (chickens) and run - 10 sg.feet per bird. Chickens get very nasty when overcrowded - bullying, feather plucking, and at extremes cannibalism. Plus: flimsy poultry wire only keeps chickens inside does nothing to keep predators out. 1/2" hardware cloth is the gold standard for replacing chicken wire.
I hope you'll share some photos of your birds and coop!
