    for another coop or is my current coop ok?

    I have 2 Barred Rocks, 2 Easter Eggers and 3 silkies in a 4x8 coop with a 16x12 run. I ended up with a bit of chick fever and got 1 Japanese Black Tail, 1 cochin banty, 2 mille fluer Old English Game bantams and 3 blue Old English game bantams. The jury is still out on the blues since we couldnt tell which were girls or boys so they may be all boys for all I know and I will have to take them back regardless, city=no roos.

    So with the girls I have already in there how many of the new ones do you think I have room for?

    I can expand the run no problem and might do it anyway just because..

    oh and they do get out in the evening for a few hours of free range yard time.

    I think regardless, of how many you have or want - you do need another coop
