Hi all!

I am planning to raise a number of different chickens, and these are some of them: Jersey Giant, Bielefelder, Welsummer, Welbar, Buff Sussex, and maybe 1 or 2 more

I am not sure whether to extend the run or not. Can anyone help and tell me how many chickens i can fit in my run?

Thanks!

OK, interesting. I was aiming for about 8, so that will suit me!:yesss:
I forgot to mention the egg box has two compartments. Do you think 10 chickens will be happy to share 2 egg compartments between them?

Thanks!

Sorry. I'm the party pooper. I wouldn't put more than 3 birds in a coop that size, especially if one of them is a JG. It's just not that big.
And I would make the run larger, even if you plan to let them out of it regularly. Again, it really isn't that big.
Some of your dimensions are missing but I'm guessing at about 29 sq feet max in the run.

I'm with them^^^ not party poopers but realists who think before they post ;)

1m x 1.3m = 3' x 4'
