Hi guys! This is my first post, so be nice. I have a bricked in (brick walls, wood gate) courtyard connected to the side of my house with a gate and open pergola type top. It's 10'9" by 5'3", so roughly 57 sqft. I'm planning on turning this area into a coop/run for my future girls. Based on the space numbers, I think I can build a 6x3 coop, giving 18 sqft indoor floor space. Now my question is... with these space specs, how many standard size (not bantam) chickens can I realistically have. I've heard everything from 2-4/hen in the coop and 10 in the run. The coop will be raised about 2 feet, so they will have plenty of room under it. My guess is somewhere between 4-6 hens. I want as many as I can fit, but I don't want them to be crowded. Advice?
