    I stink at math stuff. When I figure it up I get 2...

    I am building a 8ft X4ft X4ft coop.

    I want all standard hens, no roos

    How many chickens will fit nicely? I'd like to keep a small 10x6 run attached full time, but about 4 hours a day, they will have supervised free range. Prefered not more than 5 chickens.



    Also, a question


    If you could have a dominique, Amerecauna, Delaware, or Buff Orpington, which would you have (MAX of 3 chickens)
