    I am thinking of getting some SLW and GLW next spring, but how much coop space do they need?

    Best figures are 10sqft per bird in the run and 4sqft in the coop for roosting/laying. You have to consider any feeders or waterers inside the coop or run against your space. How many birds do you want to keep?

    Sorry, never mind about the GLW. I am thinking of 5 SLW.

    So a 5ftX4ft coop and a 10ftX5ft run would be the minimum size you would need for 5 birds.
