So I am a newbie to BYC and this is officially my first post! After years of lurking on here and reading up on backyard chickens, we are reading to dive in! We bought a 6'x8' coop off Craigslist and are hoping to build our run this fall. After reading a lot about the paddock system, I'm wondering if it can be done in a permanent run and not just a pasture setting. We plan to start with 6 laying hens and likely wouldn't go above 10. We were thinking of doing roughly 4 10'x10' permanently fenced runs/paddocks that we would rotate them through. We live in MN and have many predators in our area so we would use hardware cloth on the exteriors and top (of course burying an apron as well). What I am wondering is....is 100 sq/ft large enough for 6-10 hens that they won't decimate the run in 1 week? Has anyone had success in creating a run like this? Thanks for any insights you may have. There is a wealth of information on here and I'm hoping to gain knowledge from the experts!
