Recently built this. Didn't use plans just kind of went with the flow. My question is how many chickens would be comfortable in this? I have three now two more coming. So ill have 5 but I really want just one more lol. Would six have enough room? I only have 4 roosting boxes built inside but could add a few more if need be.

What are the dimensions of your coop? For 6 chickens, you would need about 20 sq. ft. of floor space.

The general rule of thumb is at least 4 sq. ft. of floor space in the coop per chicken. For example, I have a 6 x 8 ft. coop with 11 chickens. I've also heard that it should be 10 sq. ft. of run space per chicken, but my run is much larger so I haven't paid a lot of attention to that.
