    I would think that a 3'x6' area would be a good size for that amount of bantams. That would give them a little room so they're not tripping over each other all the time.

    I love the hoop coop! I would be able to use it in the summer here, but during the winter I would have to go with the other one!!
    DH is going to LOVE that site, skeeter! He's a carpenter, so he'll love it more than I do!!
    Now that I have some ideas, time to get started!!
    Thank you!!
