hello chicken people! I am new to the whole paddock system for chickies and have a few questions in constructing the set-up for my soon-to-be flock. I will have 6 hens, and we have a pretty cold winter climate 4 months out of the year. My idea was to orignially have a stationary LARGE coop and LARGE run for the girls, with occasional free-range under supervision. LARGE because I am assuming they won't care much to go outside when its 20 to -20. It seems to me that all coops aimed towards flocks of 4-8 are TINY little shoe boxes and it just seems inhumane to me. Is there a real reason for this? My questions are these: How large is the "minimum" size my coop can be if I allow paddock access everyday all year during daylight? How large are YOUR coops? ( I like to be generous with walking room...) How large should each paddock pasture be? Does my coop NEED to be mobile or could I just simply set a temporary "free-form" shaped paddock up then rotate as needed? Does anyone have experience with a temporary fenced paddock that they take down and re-assemble in the new location? Materials used with success? *I like the idea of temporary, becuase it is budget friendly for start-up* maybe we can grown into a permanent structure once we get the feel for this whole system*** THANKYOU!!!
