I am still new to building chicken coops, I have only been building them for a been building them for a month now. I am wondering how big does my runs need to be per square foot for my chickens. I have a photo example of 2 different types of runs I built that are 3ftx5ft run. These coops hold 4-6 chickens. Is there a certain square foot requirement for 4-6 chicken coop run?




Thanks for your help

You can make them as big as you want,what you got is much bigger and nicer then market chicken's would be in "RIP"
Looks like you did a very good job I love your coop's the first one I would only put like 2 but that's just me because I like lots of room for my chick's but the sec one look's like it can hold 4-6 depending on the size of your birds ^o^ grate job really really pretty coop's

What kind of fencing did you use on the run? Chicken wire is not predator proof, but I can't tell what you used from the picture. Nice job~~ they are pretty coops.
