Hello, I am relatively new here. I have done a lot of reading about coop size, roosts etc. I understand all the numbers but I'm not sure how they pertain to my situation exactly. I am getting more chickens in the spring and building a new coop. So I've started looking up different designs and ideas. But I also have to keep realistic about the cost. I'm thinking of building a coop about 2 feet off the ground that is 8 feet long and 4 feet high and 4 feet deep with a cupula? At the top to help with ventilation. I want all the roofs to be at the same level, food and water will be outside the coop and the nesting boxes will also be outside. The chickens will free roam around my backyard all day and put in the coop at night. So my basic question is how would you suggest I position the roosts and will this be big enough for eight full-size egg laying chickens? And if anybody has pictures that would be great, especially of the inside of their coops. Thank you for any suggestions or comments.
