Hi Everyone, We are on our way to being First time Chicken Owners. (We have not gotten our chickens yet) My Son and I just started building Our Coop yesterday and have a few questions. We are building a 4x4 coop and we'd like to know how many chickens can we put in there. Should they have free range of the backyard or should I keep them contained to a certain part of the yard? What type of chicken is suggested? I have had some people tell me Rhode Island Reds Are good but we are just not sure. Could use some good advice. Thanks.
