    This is a 4x6 coop, and a 10x6 run. I have 3 barred rocks, and 2 easter eggers. They are 3 months old. My question is could I add 2 red star hens and still be okay on space. We are in central Florida.

    Great job! I like the lay out.[​IMG]
    Sometimes you can get that many chickens in there and sometimes they have squabbles so it can often depend on the chickens as to if that much space will work.
    I have 5 hens and a roo in a 10X10 tractor and there is still one hen that gets run around by them all. Once breeding season is over I will free range them again and she will be happy.

    I like it! You should be OK space wise if you add the red stars. It is a little tight but should work.

    Nice job. I think you should be okay with the 2 extra chicks.
