Hi All, I wanted to confirm what I've been reading re: how much space you need per chicken. From what I've seen on this forum, the general advice is, 4sq ft of coop, 10 sq ft of run, minimum, for non-free-range chickens. I've got roughly 9 sq ft of coop, and 20 sq ft of run. I was hoping to go for 3 standard chicks, as I know there is a mortality possibility, and this way, I'd have less chance of leaving one lonely bird. I will let them out to forage as much as possible, hopefully daily in the summer for at least an hour, but would only be able to let them out on weekends in the winter time, when the days are shorter. So based on what I'm reading, I'm probably better off going with just two, and taking my chances with having to introduce a second, younger bird? Are there smaller standard breeds where three might be ok? Or would I be better off with 3 bantams (although I was hoping for standard eggs)? (Interestingly, it was a kit coop/run from TSC, my 'started' coop/run, advertised to fit 6-8... I saw right away that THAT wasn't going to happen, but thank goodness for this board, before I thought 4 would be ok!!) TIA!
