    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Wow, nice tiny coop!! Your son is doing a great job! Quite small for more than 1 or 2 birds however.

    Good luck finding those eggs you seek and welcome to our flock!

    Rule of thumb is 4 sg.feet per bird inside the coop (not including nest box and roost bars) and 10 sq.feet per bird in outside run.
