    We just added three chicks, making it a total of 9, when we went to 6 we added on to the run. Now it's time to build a new coop from scratch.
    Anyone mind sharing their sizes and pics of coops for 9 hens? This will be the max # of hens since we are renting. We free range daily.

    3 white leghorn
    1 red
    1 black australop
    1 Easter egger

    Babies
    1 barred rock
    1rir
    1 blue laced

    Are you still in a warm climate? (I see your first post said you live in Hawaii.) You need minimal protection from the elements there. This thread has lots of good ideas for warm climate coops.

    You might consider updating your postbit to include a location. This is easily done in your Profile.
