    I'm working on my coop (you can see the progress in my signature)

    My chickens will have limited free ranging because of neighborhood dogs. I won't leave them unattended.

    Anyway, I plan on having 10 chickens. (well with the way chicken math is going.. 12 chickens)

    The measurements of the run are 17ft x 15ft


    Is this adequate for 10 (or 12) chickens?

    The coop is 8x6. They'll be allowed into their run every day, but not outside the run unless I'm with them.

    In Alabama, that should be plenty big enough.
