There are things you need to factor into it like how many weeks before they are moved out, are they going outside for warm days? Are you planning on just keeping them in a brooder? I usually brood for about a week or two than move them to something larger, than they go outside during the day, so for me the size needed changes.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

2x3 would be the smallest I would make it, 3x3 might be about right, many use a kiddy pool for ducks, so that's a possibility.
