Hello dear BYC forum, greetings from greece!!! you ve been such a good company all this time!! have n't introduce my self and i promise i'll do it tonight I have a really important question, i tried searching and reading very long posts but i didn't get my answer yet so here we go... In the next months or month am building my new coop, i want to house 20 hens, the thing is that usualy i see that people and farmers sugest 2,6 sq ft per full grown bird wich leads us to 52 sq ft for 20 birds, so we ending up with almost 5x11 coop wich by my farmer friend opinion its extremly huge!!!! the thing is that there will be a covered run for the rainy days and the rest will be 100% free range, SO my question is 2,6 sq ft per bird run+coop or 2,6 sq feet only for the sleeping? P.S. sorry for the long post but am really stuck with this question and creates a lot of problems in my plans !!!
