    I am not really happy with the coop that we have for the "girls" which are the 3 Buff Orpingtons and the Silver Spangled Hamburg. I want a much larger cage/coop than they have although this one will have to work until we get our tax returns lol (think spring here folks) anyway Hubby and I want to start on it before the ground freezes and we were just wondering what the size should be for a good sized coop for them, the nesting part we have down pat its the run part that has us scratching our heads. Thanks so much, Shelli and the farm

    Inside 4sqft a piece (for you total 12sqft.) and 10sqft. outside (30sqft. total for you) Does that answer your question?
