    After someone responded to my breed of chicks... which are now 4 wks old... I guess I have 2 productions and 4 red sex links!? Anywhoo... we are building a 4x8 coop w a 16ft run so should I just stick w our 6 or could I add a few more?

    Well if you want to stick to 4 sq ft of coop per bird I think you could probably add 2 more.

    You could add a few more, our neighbours have a coop a tad bigger than yours, and they have nine chickens, who fit comfortably.
