I plan on 6 chickens (starting out as day olds in a brooder). The coop has 2 nesting boxes & 12' worth of roost, the coop is 6X6' with a window. The run is 10X16' with a doghouse that we're leaving (too darn heavy & bulky to move, LOL, so we're going to hinge the side for cleanup & egg collecting should they lay in there). Our yard is fairly decent sized, not huge, but they will be allowed to free-range in our backyard for a few-several hours a day. The run will be for when we can't be here to keep an eye on them. The run has been planted/modified & seeded for grass, then 1/3 or so of it is going to be dirt. It's covered in chain link and/or chicken wire. I mean this isn't ALL the details, but from what I keep reading, they should have plenty of room & the basis of what they need out there. I keep reading all these posts on chicken neglect & cruelty, and I just want to be sure my chickens are going to have room (they'll of course be loved- we're super excited & looking forward to moving further off the mainstream lifestyle). Please tell me I'm doing ok so far. PS- I put this here since it's more than just about my coop/run design.
