I keep trying to figure this out, but seems like I keep reading different answers. I will be building a new coop in the next couple of months (hopefully sooner) and need to know what the minimum size requirement for silkies. I am assuming that it would be less than is needed for standards because they are smaller and more docile? Is 2 sf per bird adequate in the coop? And how much space per bird in the run?
