So I'm considering my coop options. I just have one chicken. Shes still inside now, and for a few more weeks. When she does move outside, she'll have full run of my small backyard. There is a 6 foot fence all the way around, so i'm confident she'll be safe out there. I was actually thinking of converting a dollhouse into a coop/ nest box, but I'm just not sure if that will be big enough. There would be about 4 sq feet inside, enough for a nest box, and a place to roost. I live in So Cal, near the beach. It never gets very cold here, nor very hot. generally around 65-75 year round. What do you guys think? is that enough space?
