I have two barred rock hens (standard-sized) and an old english game bantam hen (VERY pretty bird!) in a 4sqft coop with three nest boxes, and they have an 8x4ft run attached to it. It is entirely fenced in, even the top, so they are not really harassed by predators. I want to expand their home by putting the coop on some sturdy 2ft stilts, so they can shelter under it, and therefore make the 8ft side 12ft long, and then extend the 4ft side to at least 8ft, but possibly as much as 12ft. After the run is made bigger, I may add some more nest boxes to the coop and a few roosts, then get 4-6 assorted hamburg hens (bantams). I could add another 4sqft to the coop, as well. I may get a rooster if i can find a good quiet, gentleman-like one. (Any breed suggestions for the roo?) Anyway, will my future coop/run be big enough? are their any flaws in my ideas? any suggestions for anything else? I need to know if I should get less birds or add more to their home, so what do you think is the best thing to do? Thanks in advance!!!
