    Hi, I am wondering what peoples opinions are on coops for 300 layers. Would you have one big area ie. 900 sq ft, or two at 450 sq ft, or three at 300 sq ft? Or does it even matter?

    Also, I would love to see pictures of how others set up multiple nesting boxes in their coops. If you could post them or email them to me at [email protected] I would really appreciate it.

    Hi, yes lol, I have a quarter section, 120 is planted, 35 is pasture, and the remaining 4 are the house and yard, that is where the chickens will be too.
