If I build an 8x12 coop, how many chickens can that house comfortably?
Quote:you can house 25 hens in an 8 by 12.
OOOH GOODY! That is definately one tidbit I will NOT share with the DH.
our's is about that size actually too...oh gosh, dh will just die if i get more than the 8 we already committed to..LOL
Sorry to hijack the thread, but how about 8 by 8...That's what I have.
8 by 8 will hold 16 chickens at 4sqft pre bird.or 20 at 3sqft pre bird.
We originally talked about 8x8 but I want more chickens.
Guess I have to get more!
a good rule of thumb is 4 square feet indoors and 10 square feet outdoors for each chicken.
