Hi! How many square feet of coop space per bantam? I know it's around 4 for standards, but bantams?
I think the minimum is half of what a standard would require, so 2 sq. ft. But bigger is always better!
Quote:I agree... Bigger is always better in this case. I learned that from collecting wines, raising chickens, and everything else that I collect or raise... It's a madness, I tell ya!
2 sq ft per bird is average, like the other have had said, the more space they have the better. A good rule of thumb for bantams is they need half the space of a standard size chicken.
Boy, why didn't I think of that! Makes perfect sense that it would be half of a standard. Yes, bigger is always better, I have certainly learned that is a fact when it comes to chickens cause you NEED MORE!
Quote:LOL you plan on 5 and end up with 25. Funny how that always happens.
