we just got thru building this coop and run the building is a 10 ft by 8 foot and the run is 16ft by 16ft. I was wondering how many chicken can i fit in this coop to where they are comfortable and not laying right on top of each other. I look to expan maybe next summer if all things go right if not then maye the next summer. also wanted to know what is the best way to make the next boxes and how big and also how high to put them. also wanted to know about the pervhes how hig should i put them and what should i use to make them. Sorry for all the questions i just want to make sure my hens are happy plus maybe a roo jury still out on that sweet little chicken. As of righ now i have 10 chickens 5 of them are between 7 to 9 weeks old 2BR and 3 RIR one RIR is the one in question about it it is a roo or a hen then i have 5 little ones that are 4 to 6 weeks old 2 of them black sex links/black stars and 2 EE/americaunas. Any help would be greatly appreciate it. I wold love to have lots of chickens but want to make sure they are comfortable i can always expand at a later date to house many more.
