    I have 8, week old chicks.they are 2 australorps,2 barred rocks, 2 easter eggers, 1 red sex link, and 1 black sex link. all are supposed to be pullets. ( i hope one is a roo) but back to my question. I have a 4 foot by 4 foot coop. it is 3 feet tall in the front and 2 foot tall in the back. it also has 2 nest boxes in the back. i am going to build a 12 foot long run for them and they will have access in the fall to a garden. is this enough room for them. it could be considered a chicken tractor if i had 3 people help me move it. i'll try to post pics but how many chickens could i fit in there at the max
