    It is much easier to advise you on the number of chickens if you include the dimensions.

    This is about the same size as our set up and we have four standard sized hens in there and they are pretty comfortable. (Ours is high enough for humans to walk in - which makes us comfortable!). Mine free range for about 5 hours each day. Someone more experienced may be able to tell you the maximum number you'd be able to have. Personally, I wouldn't have added any more than the four I got.
