We are getting our first meat chickens and our understanding is that you should have about 2 sq ft per bird. Now our question is that is that 2 ft of run and 2 ft of coop per bird or is it a combined total. I have a coop that is 42 sq ft and a run that is the same size. right now we are expecting 20 meat cornish x for this coop and run I am confident it is large enough for this set but we plan to increase our order next time and am wondering the max. occupancy allowed by the chicken code. Thanks for all the input and help we get from this site.
