    I plan to raise 10 cornish type meat chickens in a 6 x 12 shed. I am going to confine them the whole time this time as the outside run area they were in last time got gross fast. This way I can keep it cleaner with shavings. Can anyone tell me if 10 broilers will fit in a 6 x 12 space without trying to kill eat other? If not, what is the max. number of birds I should get to not have any problems?

    Also, I want to try to raise 2 turkey chicks for holiday dinners. Has anyone ever used a portable chicken coop and run for 2 turkeys (like eglu)? Would it work?
