    ok these are good sized birds so you will need a min. of 4 ft per inside Plus I have read that they need 6 ft per outside. Soooooooooooooo

    4 chickensX4ft=16 ft of coop space and 4chickensx6ft=24ft of run space.

    MIN> 4x4 coop and 4 X6 run Error on the side of the chickens I'd go 4x6 coop and 8x6 run. You can always add more chickens!!!
