    Right now I have 25 chickens 3 of them are roosters and I'm converting a shed that's 8x12 into a coop and the run is gonna be 12x18 it's all I can afford and still might not have enough money all the roosters are bantams I have a total of 10 bantams. I'm hoping to get a couple more girls to avoid rooster fights most likely bantams

    You have just enough space for your current flock. You may want to rehome a few of the bantam boys.

    Ok we'll see how the boys do and go from there they have a pretty strong bond they've grown up together. Thank you I appreciate the help and advice

    My concern isn't the boys getting along. It's them over breeding and causing too much stress for the bantam pullets.

    that's a really good point I'll have to keep a good eye on it if I have to rehome one or two of the boys I do have a place it will just be sad I do have two mor bantam girls coming in a few weeks just waiting to tell pullets from cockerels
