    We just got 10 broilers (chicks). We intend to keep them in a chicken tractor. Can anyone tell me how big it needs to be for 10 chickens? Many thanks!

    I would try for a minimum of 40 sq ft.

    Thank you, since the picture that is currently shown was taken I have added another 6' on to it. Removed the two nest box, turned all of the former coop into living space for the birds, installed a six nest rollout between the old coop and the addition. The addition is now my work area, egg collection point, feed storage, and one wall is cages for overwintering roosters.

    Sure glad I was only going to have 3 or 4 hens.
