    I know everyone has a different opinion, but in general..how many chickens would this hold? (Im trying to build a coop where there is not a lot of cutting on the sheets of plywood.)

    If your coop is 8 foot long and 8 foot wide?? that would be 64 feet, divide that by 5 sq feet per bird =you could have 13 birds....

    8'x8'=64' total sqaure feet
    divide 64 by 5 (square feet per standard breed)=12.8 birds
    4 (square feet per bantam breed)= 16 birds
