    I'm getting four. I think that should be enough for them . Right now I have one roo and four hens. Two in each of the five x five coops and one in a two x four coop. All have runs on the bottom the same size and I let the free range in the evening . I'm sure if it gets cold enough I'll put my heat lamp in for them. How cold should it get be for they need them?
