Hi there. I just started out on the road to chicken keeping & have built a coop from an extension of one of those old brick garage / barns with a corrulgated metal roof & concrete floor. It is 10 1/2 ft long & 8 1/2 ft wide. I wanted a breed (or breeds) of bantams or small chickens that are good layers & good meat birds also, as the extra cockerel stock from hatching will be meeting the pot eventually. The run opens up (with the coop door open) onto a natural woodland garden with a 6 foot wall around it. The garden I would class as a small to medium, with a woodland area, a gravel patio, a small courtyard & a long enclosed driveway. How many birds (roughly) would sit comfortably in the coop without overcrowding? They will have freerange access to the garden etc for a minimum of 12 hours a day in the summer & six in the winter. Also its worth mentioning I have fairly close neighbors, although one of these already has chickens. Advice welcome, thanks everyone.
