    Hi again my coop is 10x11 inside and I have 20 chickens now and had 40 but sold some off. They only used the top two roosts and I have 5 roosts.
    That means more room for the next batch of chicks I have coming.

    I think the recommendation is something like 4 sq ft per bird. You could do pretty well in there!

    HI Thunderkitty,
    11.5 x 14.5 = 166.75 / 4 = 41.6! You can have lots more chickens! Yeah for you! [​IMG]

    Ohhh... don't tempt me [​IMG] I'm down to 24 now after losing a couple and the ones I have are only 2 weeks old so I'm guessing I should make a trip to the local farm and fleet to add before it's too late in the season. Could I mix female khalki campbell ducks with chickens?
