    They say roughly 1 sq. ft per bird but so go a little less than this so you would have 40 sq. ft. total so you would be good with 40+ you would be safe with no more than 50. Hope this helps

    I would recommend installing dividers and putting 7 hens/1 roo per section.

    If your roos can get to each other there will be blood.

    You can keep say 10 hens in a section without much trouble.

    you can make as few or as many as you like, I use pens that are 2'X3', I would not go much smaller.
