    Seriously, though, they say four square feet per bird in the coop and 10 sq feet in the run. That is a general guideline.

    Ummmm...if this is a serious question, then I would recommend a minimum of 12 sq. ft of housing (like maybe a 3 x 4 or 4 x 4 shelter) and 30 sq. feet of run space. Of course more space than that is wonderful and beneficial.
