Coop size - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Sorry to bother everyone, my wife and I, were given 5 chicks from a friend,ome pf hhos hens did not want them after she hatted them. They were 3 days old when we got them and now they are almost 2 weeks.
Anyway, while they are in thehouse I am working on getting them a coop. I am not sure what size i need for the 5 of them. Could someone please take a look at this one and tell me what they think please.

You really should start your own thread but that will never work for 5 chickens. It's entirely too small. Approximately a 20 sq.ft coop and 50 sq.ft. run will be required for your 5.

1Peter 5:2 Care for the flock that God has entrusted to you. Watch over it willingly, not grudgingly—not for what you will get out of it, but because you are eager to serve God.

The house part of that is only 17" x 43"...about enough square footage for one regular size chicken, which means not good for chickens at all since you wouldn't/shouldn't have a lone chicken.

Japanese, OEG, Sebright, Brahmn, d'Uccle, and EE bantams; and RIR, BR, and EEs, Golden Penciled Hamburg, EEs, Anconas, Bielefelders, Wheaten Marans, Speckled Sussex, and a surprise variety of bantams with breeds tbd!

 

16 guineas and 2 turkeys to round out the flock

 

Another victim of poultry math. Aiming for a "designer" flock and egg basket :)
