Is this coop big enough?

    I think the coop is big enough for 8 hens, but they need a larger run area. And it's hard to be sure from the pictures, but the roosts look too close together for grown hens to be comfortable. Easy enough to space them farther apart when you build it.

    And I recommend covering the floor with press-and-stick tiles, to make it easy to clean.

    Good idea on the tiles! I plan on opening the door in the run for them to roam free during the day, but I may expand it to a 6x12.
