The squirrels will eat their feed but won't/shouldn't harm your birds.

I'd say get rid your squirrel issue so your not tearing through feed at an astronomical amount.

I'd say 4 chickens depending upon coop size attached to the run. Yes, squirrels will kill your chickens. They don't have to be ground squirrels either, we have gray squirrels that are very much predatory.

Lol, plants that repel squirrels only keep them from eating the plants. Those plants are poisonous, make sure your chickens don't eat them.

I never had either until I moved here.
