I have 15 chickens right now. I have 26 on the way. Now some might die and i will be doing a biger run.






At one time we had about 20 full grown meat birds and 13 teenagers. They all had room to move. I will have to do a biger run.

If your coop is 8x10 (I'm guessing based on photos) you can put 20 chickens in your coop. Very nice coop. One suggestion is that I'd add more roosts.

I will in side the coop. They should be ok. Right? They are going to be babys. And they will not have there shots. I had a hen hatch some babys and i did the same thing i am going to do for the other chicks and they are ok. Will i have to seperate them?

you could easaly fit 50+ birds in that house. you need more roosts and you dont need that many nest boxes but since u have them there fine.
