Ok guys I am a bit confused! I am gonna do this a bit backwards as I have a coop. I am a first time chicken owners. My father and I built our coop it is 6 by 10 of which 6 by 3 or 18 ft is enclosed and will eventually hold roosts and nest boxes, while the other 6 by 7(42 sq ft) is a run. It is 6 foot + in height. How many chickens will this hold? I am not sure how much they will make it out of the structure because one of our two dogs is not so fond of our little chicks! I want to ensure my chickens have a nice quality of life, so what is the right amount of birds for my space? Here is a pic of the coop.
