I currently have 8 rr and 3 br in a coop that is 5x10. Run is 10x10. The chickens free range most of the day. They only use the coop to lay and roost. Would I be ok to add 4 more to the flock?? We have 4 nesting bars so there are plenty of places to roost.

It's probably OK, depending on what you mean by free ranging "most" of the day. I'm not sure I would add more chickens, but that's just my opinion.

The only time they are put away is if I leave. Other then that they are out. When they are confined they have access to the coop and the run. The coop is raised so they can get out of the weather.

In that case, it seems fine
