    My coop and run will be one unit. The coop is 5 by 8 for a total of 40 square feet. The attacked run is 12 by 12 for a total of 144 square feet. Whats the most amount of chickens I could put inside this setup. Thanks

    I would target a max of ten permanent residents. In the summer I would allow more for chick hatching and whatnot. :)
