Most people on this forum do 4 feet per bird right? If you free range during the day do any of you go with less room? Right now I have 13 chickens in an 8x8 coop. only 5 are full size, the rest are bantams. I plan on getting more before the summer is over but am unsure on how many I should realistically put i there. I mean I dont want to crowd them, but they free range 12 hours a day and during those 12 hours they dont spend any time in the coop at all. But then there might be a week or two a year when we are on vacation when they would be confined to the coop and run.
