I am brand new to chicken ownership and I was hoping I could get some answers to a lot of questions that I have! I live in Texas so warm weather is definitely the biggest problem- not cold. Right now I have a 4x12 that is about 6 ft tall attached to a 12x12 roofed run (same height). The chickens have their choice of being indoors or out... they spend time in both places during the day and night. The coop has a large window on one end and part of it is screened to the run. Right now I have 2 Barred Rock hens and one rooster along with 10 assorted young hens (6-10 weeks old). How many chickens can I reasonably expect to keep in this area. I should also mention the chickens are loose every night for about 3 hours to roam the land and eat bugs etc. We are in the process of designing and building a second coop.... coop would be 4x20 and the run would be 10x20. The idea was to maybe raise some chickens for meat but I was thinking of using a dual purpose breed like the Barred Rocks... would these chickens be 'meaty' enough and at what age would I butcher them? Thanks for the advice!
