    I have seven Serama cross bred bantams and two pure bred d'Uccles. I follow the same rule of thumb as for the standard breeds: 4 square feet per chicken minimum coop space, plus 10 square feet per chicken minimum run space.

    You'll never be sorry to have too much room for your chickens.

    With the little ones you can get away with 2 sq ft er bird floor space plus nest and roost bar. Check out the small coop section on the coop designs link at the top of the page. If housing them all in one coop, even check out that medium sized coop would want something at least 6' x 6' with the roosts to house them in one.
