I built my coop at roughly 30sf, with 3 nesting boxes and about 11 linear feet of roosting space. When I built the coop in the fall I was thinking of keeping 6-8 chickens, but am now looking at keeping 10 now, along with 2 cayuga ducks. I have 72 sf of covered run space for bad weather days, but plan on free ranging the birds most of the time. Does anyone have an opinion of whether these dimensions will suffice?
