Do you have any building materials to start or do you need to buy everything? Do you need a 4 seasons coop? Watch for free stuff on Craig's list. You can often find child playhouses / forts there and convert them easy.

A lot of threads talk about 1 to 1.5 sqft of space. Some argue way less with a large run. So if you are only going to have 3 birds 2'x3' should please the chicken gods
