    Are they gonna be free range in the yard or in the coop area? How big will the run be? Looks like a good sized coop. [​IMG]

    The METRIC system? [​IMG] Ya'll on the west coast get all the cool stuff first!!!!!
    I'm not gonna lie I have no idea about the # of chickens. The big coop looks to be a good size. Could you make a covered run the width of that coop and 6.5 feet [​IMG] I mean
    200cm long? Convert the pink box into a big nesting center!!!
    Are you talking 10 to 15 chickens or like dozens and dozens?

    Looks like you have enough coop for that number of chickens. You just need a run area for them to run around in. I would always err on the side of more space. You can always get more chickens!!!!! [​IMG]

    I think your idea will work also, you are giving them a run with the floor of the pink coop. Just remember to try and keep out those predators. (don't know what kind you deal with in Calif. Good luck!!!
