    Hi everyone, we are building our coop and run, and have decided to put a divider in it for the banties, how much room would 4 banties need and has anyone have pics of a run set up that way?

    Quote:4 Banties would be fine in 16 square feet which is only 4x4. I'd give
    them a little more if you have the room.

    Thanks, that shouldn't be a problem-the total coop and run will be 10 x 8, i have 6 hens and a roo that will be on one side, then the banties- here are the first pics of construction, doesn't look like much yet-
