Hi there, Just started keeping chickens this spring after inheriting a coop and run from a neighbor who decided not to keep chickens anymore. I'm planning to keep more than the three ladies I ended up with, to a maximum of 6 (that's the limit according to the city). I keep reading different things about the size I need. The current coop has very little roosting space (4x3) but lots of lay box space attached to both sides (4 lay boxes making it 6x3). Question is this: do I really need a larger coop if the run expanded to 6' tallx6' widex10-15' long? I do let them free range for a few hours every evening but would like to be able to go out of town and leave them enclosed from time to time. I can build a giant box for the run, but I'm lost about how to modify the coop to make it bigger. Seems a waste to buy a new one. How much sleep and laying space do they really need?
