    I got the 4 corner posts sunk & leveled, & the floor plan framed out. The rest should go up real fast now. When I'm done the coop will be 8x8x8 foot with 6 nesting boxes & a 12x20x11 foot run.

    What's the max # of chickies can this set up house?

    i think in the coop a good rule of thumb is 2-4 square feet per bird and 2-4 birds per nest box
