Ok, when you say 10 square feet per bird, does that mean vertically also? I mean is that just ground area? Cause that would be one monster run!!
Our run is an old dog run that the dog refuses to use. LOL It was already here when we moved in. It's 10X25 (so 250 sq ft) in an average sized city backyard. It looks so small and doesn't seem to take up a ton of space! 2 sides are the 6' backyard fence, one side is a 6' shed and the 4th side is chain link (no roof). We only have 4 chickens currently and still they want more! They fly over the 4' chain link fence to have the run of the whole backyard....
