    Wish I had had that a couple of months ago. Looks almost identical to what I built only better!

    Has anyone ever seen a henhouse uising this plan? How many large breed chickens do you think could live happily in a house this exact size?

    The interior is a little less than 4' by 4'. This housing has something less than 16 square feet.

    Purina says, ". . . plans accommodate 8 full size chickens or 12 bantams." But, 8 chickens would not even allow 2 square feet per bird. I'd say that is really too tight . . .
