Well I am planning on getting a new coop and making it a 10x12. My chickens are in another barn but they are somewhat exposed to the elements so I want to get them sometime a little more sheltered from the cold. I was wondering how many that you think that I could fit in there. It would only really be for the night and for them to lay because they are out the rest of the time free ranging and such. Right now I have about 25 so I am not sure if I should go a little bigger or not.
