My DW has joined in on this chicken adventure and she is the reader among us. She keeps reading references to small, medium and large flocks. Of course she asks me what a small flock is....


I finally found one older book (1950's) that references a small flock as 50 or less. These are my guesses...... Is this what everyone thinks?

Small - less than 50
Medum 50 - 100
Large - 100 - 250
Commercial operations - chicken factories 25+

most all the flocks are in the small to med range.because most people have from 10 to 50 hens.if your judging by hen space id be considered a large producer.because i have room to brood 150 chicks an for 400 hens.but im just a small timer.getting a new flock started this year.
