2 sf in coop for large hens, 1 sf for bantams. 10sf in run for large, 5 sf for bantams. and 10 acres to free range every day for all

Flock of wonderful productions birds including Easter Eggers, Black Copper Marans, Ameraucanas, Buff Orpingtons, Barred Rocks, Speckled Sussex, and a few pretty Mutts!

 

Hoping to breed D'uccles and White Silkies next spring!

 

My ducks hold a special place in my heart.

Total 5 Hens.

 

Coop size 4 wide x 10 long X 5 feet high = 40 square feet of floor space / 5 Hens = 8 square feet per chicken.

 

Run size: 10 feet wide x 20 feet long x 6 feet high = 200 square feet /5 Hens = 40 square feet per chicken.

 

Access to run all day from 8h00am to 8h00pm.

We have 25 chickens and 1 guinea in a 8' X 8' chicken tractor.  They free range outside on about 8 acres.
