This is a bit silly, but here goes. I have 15 chickens, I originally had 5, and built a coop big enough for them, but my MIL decided she wanted a few, then my son and daughter wanted a couple more, so needless to say they have outgrown their coop. my MIL gave me $200 to build them a new coop seeing as it was her who overoccupied my coop, and I found a playhouse for $100 which was 6x6x6, then I was going to attatch a run with the other $100. now MIL and FIL are saying, no that will not be big enough, they want it at least double the size!, and they want me to build it?!!!, they will "help" of course, but seeing as they are both in their late 70's and my MIL doesn't venture outside for more than a minute at a time there is not going to be much help, hence the ready built playhouse. Anyway seeing as I will be the one making it, I am the one looking after the chickens and cleaning it, I think I should be the one choosing it - and I think this amount of space is fine, maybe I am wrong?.... more of a vent than anything else/!
