We have six 5-wk old chicks right now, but I think a couple are roosters, so in the future I'd love to add to our flock. Our coop is 8'x7' and 6'/7' ft tall. The run is 18'x10'. So how many birds could be comfortable in our coop considering we live in WY and have cold winters? I wouldn't want them all on top of each other when it's too cold to go out.

You can fit 14 standards/large fowl in your coop, or 28 bantams.

Bantams require 2 square feet per chicken, and Standards require 4 square feet per chicken.
