Hi, My wife and I are very interested in getting into chickens and we have tons of questions. We are lucky enough to be buying a home with a sturdy 8x8 coop inside a 20x20 pen. It has 8 nesting boxes inside. We went to the Boston show in North Oxford yesterday and had a great time looking at the entries and flea market. A few dumb questions, How many chickens could we have in that size coop and pen? What types of chickens are good layers? Do all breeds of chickens get along together? We were looking at the Leghorns for layers, but the Silkys sure are cute!! I was thinking a couple would be good for my granddaughters 4-h. Thanks for any help.
