    Hi again,
    Well I measured my coop and it is 16 ft 8 in X 13 ft 10 in now how many of the cochin bantams can I have in there in your opinions? They will be outside quite a bit except for when it's stormy or too cold. All thoughts welcome!!
    Thanks so much!!

    The 4 sq ft rule is for standard size birds. If they are indeed bantams you could up that number.
