    I would say that depends on the sq. ft. per bird in the coop. If they have room they'll be ok. If they are crowded you will have problems.

    That gives you 10 sq ft per bird. Should be good until you get your run completed.

    You can probably get away with it *briefly* but I would suggest gettin' that run built pronto [​IMG] (Especially since soon you are likely to run into complications like frozen ground or inconveniently-timed dumps of snow)

    Good luck, have fun,
