We are having a woodin storage building delivered next week, which will be our coop. Just wondering how many chickens (standard and some bantams) could we fir in something that size? I am wanting 25 to 35.
Thanks!

Going by the basic rule of thumb...4 square feet per bird for indoor space...30 standard sized birds.

Hope this helps!

Dawn419 is right, but you can tweak that number a little bit. A few more will be OK if you intend to free range them during the day or if they're bantams, a few less if they don't have much room outside.
