Looking to get 25 rangers and wanted to get an idea of how much area i need to fence off for the run.

Also, do meat birds still need the 3-4 sq ft/bird area in the coop portion?

thanks

We kept 32 FR in an 10x12 greenhouse with probably 1700 sq ft in run space and they did really well. I would say they might not need 3-4 coop space if they are only in there at night, but my husband says he wouldn't do less than two. We had about 50 square feet of outside run per bird and they trashed it in week. There was NO grass left, only dirt. You might consider making them a moving coop. We used electric netting. You could use that in sections and move them too.
