Ok, so hubby and I are having an argument/discussion about the coop we are working on. I've not had chickens before unless you want to count the one's on my grandma's farm when I was a kid (they were 100% free range and had half a barn as a coop. Main question... Right now we have 12 hens and MY idea of what size the coop should be is MUCH different than his idea. His father raised chickens way back when and so he believes he knows all chickens need. I tend to spoil all my animals whether they live inside or out. Please...what is the minimum size coop for 12 and how large should the run be? Don't worry, I always go much larger than minimum size. He has already started cutting lumber to frame the walls and I want to make sure that we are building large enough. Also, how large for 24? Oh, and "space" isn't an issue, we have 80 acres. Secondary question...what is the most important features of inside the coop? What should there be that we are likely to either forget or not think of?
