I recently begged my hubby to build a tractor for a backyard flock. It has 3 2ftx2ft "nesting boxes, an enclosed area with door and vents that is 3ftx3ftx3ft with a roost, and the "run area is 3ftx10ft and 4ft high. We currently have 6 barred rocks that are about 10 weeks old and I am wondering if as they grow will I have to extend the coop or run area. I cannot let them free range due to neighbors animals as well as hawks and other predators.
Also if it is big enough approx how many can I have in their and still be comfy and healthy. We are only wanting pullets for the eggs so whichever ones turn out to be roo's will go to the next sale.
