im building a 4x4x4 coop for my 4 silkies, with 3 nesting boxes. how large should the run be? it will be 5 feel tall (covered) and I think 4 feet wide, but I don't know about length (I'm thinking around 10 but I'm not sure)
10' would be an okay minimum. At just 5' tall you are going to have to stoop down or crawl around to get in it to clean up or rescue a bird. You wouldn't want to have to go too far crouched down like that.
