Hey y'all! I am new to chickens. Just got my first flock of baby chicks on Sunday 3/8/15. They will be 3 weeks old tomorrow. I am planning on buying the materials this weekend to build a coop for them. I was told by the hatchery that I would need to have at least 2 sq. ft. per bird for the coop and about 4 sq. ft. per bird for the run. I just want to be positive that this is correct and also I was wondering if anyone would be able to help me in converting that to feet. I know this kinda sounds like a dumb request, but I have NEVER been good at math/measurements so any help would be greatly appreciated. I have 4 Red Stars and 2 Barred Rocks. So 6 chicks in my flock. I would definitely like to build the coop and run big enough for when they are adults so I don't have to build a bigger one as they grow. Please someone help me out with this. I would REALLY appreciate all the help I can get! Thanks in advance!
