Currently I have 5 birds - 3 RIRs and 2 BRs - that are 6 months old and laying great! My plan is to get 6 more, different breeds, next Spring. My current coop is 5'x4'(20sqft) with a run 6'x9'(54sqft). Here's what I would like to do. I would like to add a second coop that connects to the run on another side rather than build a new larger coop or expand the current one. I guess my question is, will having 2 coops with a shared run area work? or will they all by nature cram into one coop even if there are two? I will be expanding the run as well, but they will be free-ranging most of the time anyway. Input appreciated, Thanks!
