    Hi everybody!!! How many full size chickens do you think I could fit COMFORTABLY in a 4x6 chicken coop and a 7. 5x 7.5 run?

    Thanks!

    Ha ha not enough is right...but I think people recommend for large breeds, 5 sq. feet of space in the coop, and 2-3 square feet for bantams. So like 5 or 6 large breeds, or 8 or 9 bantams if you want to squeeze. Overcrowded birds may get nasty with each other, though, and that run doesn't seem too large.


    Shoot for 4 large breeds or 7 bantams. You will end up with more [​IMG]
