Hello, so i'm pretty sure i know the answer, however i think i'm trying to justify the madness that has become housing 6 small chickens. I had settled on a quaker style coop because I like the look and we are in a residential area and it will be seen. I had planned on a 4x4 but then got to thinking that is prob too small. I can only have 6 chickens per code ($100 offense per chicken over) so the flock will not be expanding so they had a 4x6 which i thought would work 4ft per bird, not too bad for little silkies. then i saw for a $100 more I can get a 5x6, then for just another hundred I can get a 5x8 (thankfully that is as large as they make them, haha) so as i safe to assume the larger the better as it will be all around easier and better for the birds?
