    So I am making the leap into a small egg production operation (eating and hatching). I want to have 4 coop and runs that are essentially 8ft wide x 36 ft long.

    The actual coop will be 8x8
    The covered portion of the run will be 8x8
    The uncovered portion of the run will be 8x16

    3 coops will have one single breed and the 4th will have my mixed flock.

    I figured 24 birds in each coop/run. Breakdown is 22 hens and 2 roos.

    Is this correct or could I do more hens or roos?

    If this helps it is a rough sketch of what I want in my coop. I want to have air flow from all sides if need be.

    Hi, I am researching the same. We have 7, 2-month-old chicks. We have seen all size comments.
