Happy New Year Y'all! This is my 1st post I don't have any chickens - YET! However, my fiancé & I are working as fast as we can to get 5+ acres. We are doing as much research as we can before we get the property so (hopefully) things will run pretty smooth. I have seen over and over the minimum spacing of 4 sq. foot in the coop & 10 sq. foot in the run per bird. My question is: Since I live in South Texas, where the temps regularly reach 100+ degrees for several/many weeks in the summer, do I need to give the girls extra room inside the coop?? Thanks for your help!! Reading these forum posts has been very helpful.
