    I am working on my coop and chicken run area this weekend and needed some advice. I have a barred rock, a buff orpington and a light brahma (all 3 weeks and still in the house). With the size of the brahma as an adult, should I count her as 2 chickens when configuring space needed inside the hen house?

    The space needed doesn't have to be exact. Just ballpark. And depending on where you got them the brahma shouldn't get much bigger than the buffs or rocks. A few pounds bigger at most
