My neice has wanted chickens since I started keeping them 2yrs. Her husband is not handy so she chose to purchase a coop at the local feed store.. It cost her 800$ --It's cute, it's 2x4 w/ an attached run that is 4x4 and the 2x4 foot area under the coop.. It has a 2 foot roost, two nest boxes and about a 2x2 floor space... WELL, the salesperson assured her it would hold 8 adult hens!!!! EIGHT hens... The roost is right in front of the nest box... I had given her my " Chicken...for Dummies " book.. She has her heart set on at least 6 heavy breed pullets, that she is going to go buy tomorrow... Isn"t this gonna be a problem????
