Ok, my quail aviary is almost done! So now I am onto project number two. Boy it is so much fun having someone who knows how to build around! LOL So I have a small area next to an extremely large pony pen I am going to use. I plan on dividing the pony pen in a third and that will make this silkie house's run 10 X 16. So for the house I am limited in space because of a building, a propane tank and a couple of trees. I am looking at a max of 8 X 6 for the coop. My question is will that be big enough for a dozen or less silkies? I can imagine it would be more than enough for about 5 or 6 LF.
