    I'm in the middle of building a chicken coop for my five standard sized chickens. I may add another chicken soon, so will a 4x6 coop and a 6x12 run be enough for 6 chickens? They will probably get to free range for an hour or two each day, but that may not always be possible because we have dogs

    It will be tight, but doable, depending on personalities involved. If you can roof the run so it becomes part of the coop, that will really help. Mary
