    14 banams (2 which are oegb's own cage on shelf) 2 silkies, 3 geese in a seperate section and 2 muscovies

    My coop is 10x12?

    There is a divider up the middle for geese to not get to chickens but chickens can fly over and go wherever in the coop.

    The general rule is 3 square feet per bird in the coop as a minimum however if they are bantams u could prob go under that if you wanted but i find its always best if you have a little extra space.

    thanks so I have enough room. I don't want crowding and I'm not getting anymore. Again I say that and in 4 days I have picked up 6 and rehomed one. Darn chicken math.
