Yeah the square footage was right for them. They all lay eggs in it, three nesting boxes and they only use one. It’s bigger than the picture leads you to believe honestly. Only one , sometimes two, sleeps outside. We are looking into what we can do for the winter.Sorry, but I think this one is also too small for 4 birds.
Do you plan to winterize your run to keep the snow and wind out of it?
Are you near a Dollar Tree? They have little round press on lights, LED. Stick one just inside the door of the coop on the wall. At dusk turn it on. It's lighter inside the coop then outside. My stubborn chicken's always go inside then. Only cost you a buck find out.so we got a new coop for our 4 hens, think the old one was too small, seeing one was sleeping outside. But now two sleep on the roof of the coop. Should I just let them be, hoping if they get cold they will go inside?
