The ad did say 14 at one point. I have seen it before on here.
I do not think it is big enough for even 7 birds though.
They are as vague as possible in giving the actual coop dimensions. That has been a long time frustration as well.
When you get time take a tape measure to the coop. Do not include the nest boxes as usable floor space. Those are for egg laying not standing or walking around in.
Yes I'm brand new! It's so wonderful to have a resource from experts. I've only had chickens for a year and a half, it's certainly a learning process. I'll provide dimensions and pictures tomorrow. Many thanks!I just realized you are brand new to BYC.
It's a great community full of helpful folks. I do hope we can figure out why they are sleeping in the run and in the nest boxes.
Get some pics of the inside too!I will measure it out tomorrow, I appreciate the help!
When did you add them, how old are they now, in weeks or months?4 are new to the flock this year
Just going by roosting bars it's way too small - you have 8', you need around 14'. Even more for integrating new birds as the older birds will chase them off. Not sure if you have space for additional bars (they need to be at least 12" apart and 12" from wall, with sufficient space to land in front of it).It is a pre-fab. There are 4 roosting bars about 2' long.
