    I am in the process of getting a few bantam eggs to hatch out and am looking for some advice. I am hoping to get 2 or 3 babies from this hatch to keep. I know they are smaller than standards, but how much inside space should they have? Then how much outside space, and of course how big should the next boxes be?

    Thanks everyone for all the help so far, I'll get pics of the current chicken tractor up soon.
