    wanting to raise quite a few chickens probably 25-30 Breed standard Marans and 80-100 "backyard" marans. Thoughts on these coops:

    This one is good for 80-100 hens. I plan on using the boxes, not the community nest option:

    This will be my brooder barn for the chicks:

    I will use a coop like the first link as a broiler barn after removal of nesting boxes.

    Thoughts please?
