I'm still in the planning stages, but want to have 2 Dorking flocks so I can use the rolling method to keep new birds coming in. Assuming the majority of new chickens will be culled at seven months should I still allow 4 square feet per bird in the coops? I don't want to have too much space in winter and end up with cold birds or too little space while cockerels are growing out. I'm hoping to rely on broody hens to incubate the eggs and am unsure how prolific they'll be and what sort of timing they'll end up with for popping out chicks. Does anyone on here have experience with this and if so how much space are you allowing them and what sort of numbers are you ending up with? Thank you in advance for any help.
