    Is a 12x8 coop with small storage area and a 10x40 run enough room for 25 hens and 2 roos?

    I want to process about 12, but I have been told BOs take pretty long to mature.

    12x8=96, minus small storage area = 90 sq ft, divided by 27 = 3.3 sq ft per chicken. By most BYCers standards, yes, this is probably just about adequate space, especially since a 400 sq ft run will give them PLENTY of room out there.

    If you start getting problems, you can always process some earlier (probably the offenders).

    Good luck, have fun,

    Pat
