    So I just got a used chicken coop in really good shape. I have 2 chickens, but am going to get more in the future. The coop is 3 ft wide by 7 ft long by 6-7 ft tall. I am going to install a couple of roosting bars in the future. But my heat roosting bar is fine for now. I don't have it plugged in because it is summer. Does anyone know how many chickens I can fit in it?

    7 times 3 = 21 square feet.
    21 divide by 4 = 5.
    Your coop alone is good enough for about 5 large fowl birds.

    Recommended 4 sq ft per chicken in the coop & 10 sq ft in the run per chicken ... Repost as recommended by Yorkshire Coop, better response & ideas.
