If chickens will be outside in a covered run in the winter, inside a sheltered yard, will they need as much coop space? I am thinking of 3-6 large hens that will basically only be in the coop to roost at night, who can go out all day in a covered run. The whole thing (coop/run) will be inside a small yard with solid wood fencing that will act as a windbreak. I don't want a coop that is a whole building per se, just a place to nest and roost at night. So basically my question is do they need a lot of floor space inside their coop if they can go out all day?? Does this make sense?
