- Our family: 2 adults, 1 child
- We have a small yard
- We do not eat very many eggs AT ALL!!! Althought I am sure we will eat more when we have chickens
- The local zoning code alows chickens, but only a few
Becuase of these factors, we are thinking 3 hens, all of good laying breeds (we have no meat intentions). Will 3 gals be enought, or do we need a few more?
