    At 4 sq. ft of coop space per chicken - you could have 4 standard size chickens - probably 6 bantams. How big of a run will they have?

    The more room you have, the fewer problems you'll have with things such as feather picking and pecking each other. Everything is easier - and better for the chickens - when they have as much room as possible.

    4 really big ones, if they are Campine sized maybe 6 and maybe 6-8 bantys.
