Hi all :)

How many chickens would you say could fit comfortably in this design please, it’s my friends layout he’s currently building but he is unsure on quantity..
So because I’m on this site already I said I would ask the experts haha

Thanks everyone

Run is the limiting factor here, so 7 standard hens.

Any particular reason for this layout? What's in the space framed by coop and run? It'd be a lot more cost efficient to build each as a simple rectangle, and it'd give them more space, so like (putting them where they currently stand) 6x6 square for the coop, and the run 8x12. That'd be room for 9.

He had originally built the coop & a small run, but extended the coop bigger and now extended the run larger.. shape of his area that can build on you are so did it this lay out .. so you say 7 standard hens as it stands ?
