we are going to start raising chickens in SE Alaska. and i am wondering how big a coop and run we need. we are thinking 4-5 chickens. probably 3 layers and 2 meat chickens...... what do you think??
oh yeah wondering if we need to heat the coop also?
i think it's recommend 4 sq ft/bird. considering your location maybe beef that size up some since they may have to stay in there for days at a time during winter.
