Hi-a all! Does anyone have a coop to small? We have an 8x8 coop for the new (5 week old) girls. The secure run is 9x10 but I plan on having an additional "partial" free range run as well for more room. Problem is I'm addicted as my DH calls it to chickens!!! I went to the farm store yesterday and they got new really awesome looking chicks in. The colors are magnificent already and I want some so bad!!! They are soooo CUTE!!! The minimum to purchase is six, I already have 12, which may not sound like a lot to many of you who keep a small petting zoo but to my DH it's overwhelming as this too is his first experience w/ animals/ pets ever. We have the property to expand the coop but it just took him 3 weeks to build the current "super coop" (as he calls it) they now have. Nothin really "super" about it, It's basically just a nice shed just took the DH a bit longer to complete. Anyhow- What would chicken life be like if I added just a few more to the group? Will they be tramendously overcrowed as I wouldn't want situations to become unhealthy for them. I am just having a hard time visualizing what they will look like in there fully grown. What if I paid for 6 at the store and only took two??? I really want them!!!
