Are you saying they have a coop? Or that they shelter under a coop but without having access to it? (This being summer, that could be fine, but I'm just trying to figure this out.)We have 10 birds in a pen that consists of a 3ft x 6ft under coop space plus a 10ft x 6 ft attached run. I feel like they're a bit crowded but I haven't been able to expanded it yet. The original plan was that there would be 12 birds in an 8ft x 16ft run with attached coop by now but life happened.
More space or less birds would be the obvious long-term fix.Any advice on how to return my flock to a peaceful status would be appreciated.
