    So if a coop will house 3 standard hens comfortable will it house 5 banties comfortably?

    I don't want to overcrowd, but I don't want more coop than 5 little Japanese banties will need.

    Normally I overbuild, but with my husband and chickens it just means he gets more chickens. So I'm hoping a smaller coop will control his Japanese banty lust.

    I let him know I won't over crowd or have brids in less than good housing and he knows I mean it. I am the animal keeper and builder of coops so I am the decider on what we get. He learned that bringing home birds without asking means we have chicken for dinner the next night. [​IMG]
