Ok so I have never been good at this. My coop is small, 2x4 by 2 tall. My run is 8x4 by 4 tall. What does it add up to and how many birds does that hold comfortably? My two hens are doing good in it but I was wondering if I can add more without expanding. Thanks for the help.

The general rule of thumb is 4 square feet per chicken in the coop and 10 square feet per chicken in the run.

You have a coop that is 8 square feet. That is good for 2 chickens.

You have a run that is 32 square feet. That is big enough for 3 chickens.

You might could have 3 chickens, but you should not go more than that.
