    I have two pens that I am gonna use for my Cornish X. I don't know which one I'll end up using yet.
    How much space do they actually NEED?

    You don't need that much room for 3. I have a pen that is 8x8 with 11 Freedom rangers in it and they have more space then they will use. I would say you could go with 2 to 3 square feet each. You'll only have them for 8 weeks.
