Is this a good coop for this amount of money?

    For four hens, if it comes with the run I'd say go for it. Looks REAL nice.

    That coop is 4'X4', or 16 sq. ft., so at 4 sq. ft. per hen, that is 4 hens. You have 50 in the bator.


    I know you already said you will probably build your own. But sounds like you need to do a little more research, to have even asked this. 50 hens would = 200 sq. ft. of coop and 500 sq. ft. of run, minimum. If half are roos and they go to freezer camp that is still 100 sq. ft. of coop and 250 sq. ft. of run. You do not want to crowd them, I promise!
