So we went out Sunday and bought 7 bantam chickens. I don't know if they are male or female. We would like to get some good laying hens at some point too, but there was a 6 hen minimum at Tractor Supply so we bought the 7 they had. Now I'm wondering if we'll have too many chickens. We don't have a coop yet..planning on buying one soon. How big does this coop need to be? How many more hens do we need to get a few eggs every day? I'd love to get like 4 or 5 eggs daily. So new to this. I'm wondering if we don't have enough space for the amount of hens we will need. We already have a 10 x 10 dog run we're planning on using as a run..just need the shelter and boxes for them to lay in! We also have a great privacy fence around our whole yard.
