    i was originaly going to order 3 bantam chicks. but one died in shipping and so i have to order three more or make up for the one i lost, but because they are soooo cute i am ordering 4... probalby.

    anyway, i needed to know how big a tractor and run i need to make for 6 bantam chickens.

    for three it was going to be aproximetly 4 x 3 ft coop and the run was 3 x 8 ft. but for six i am assuming it needs to be a bit bigger... [​IMG]

    thank you!

    For bantams I would keep the coop size the same and maybe expand the run. your other option is to just move the tractor more often! Or build a bigger tractor so down the road you can get more!
