Just got my chicks a 2 weeks ago. Crazy how quick they grow. Started the coop last weekend. Need to finsh it up and add on the run. Coop is 4x4x4. Run is doing to be 12 feel long 4 tall and 4 wide. I got 5 birds. Should be a good start. I'm down in Florida so the birds will have a nice life in the sun.
