    Hello, I would like to have 15-25 hens, and my space is 33.6x12.4. Will my hens be happy here?

    I that the size of your coop, run, or both? If it is your coop then you should be able to handle 100+ chickens with a run that is 1000 sq/ft. If that is the size of you run then 40 chickens will be your # and you will need a coop 160 sq/ft. If that is combined coop/run then 30 will be about it with part run part coop. It should be enough for what you want either way.

    Our coop and run together is about 15x15, and we have 3 hens. I could see having up to 8 or 9. Since your space is twice as big, I feel that 15 to 20 would be nice, but 25 might be a little crowded...
