Hi all, Ok, I see that one has to have 4 sq feet per chicken for a coop... but I look online and see these small coops for 5-6 chickens. Many have attached runs. Do the attached runs "count" in that 4 sq feet per chicken? Note from the picture, the small red run that is already attached to the red coop is going to be covered with wood and made into an actual part of the coop with a window and vents, so the longer wooden run will be the only actual "run", attached to the coop, though they will have our yard. We have a small coop with a short run attached, and then a separate longer run that will be permanently attached once the coop and runs are cleaned and painted. We plan to let our chickens out into our yard to get some time to move around each day,we have a large backyard. Does coop height matter? Also, we are in Minnesota where temps go from 100+ degrees and 100% humidity to -20 below zero windchill, if that makes any difference with coop size. The top of the coop is removable and off, it's flat across, not arched. How many chickens can I fit in this coop/run set up? Thanks! The girls are currently living temporarily in a large sized dog crate in our garage, but they get out to the yard each day. The wooden run is attached to the dog crate so they can go in there and move around. Eventually the run will be attached to the coop.
