    I have a 8x12 divided into 2 sections with 2 windows. I have several roost on each side going up like steps. I have had 140 grown chickens roosting in it at night for sevaral months without a problem. NOTE they ONLY roost---no feed ot water in the building.

    I also have a 6x12 that I roost close 100 in it---no probems
