I'm curious how many chickens everyone has and how many they have room for. I currently have 12 chickens (8 hens and 4 roosters), with room for 22 chickens in my coop. Are most people under/over or at capacity? (Figured 4 sqft per chicken in the coop)

I am bare maximum for the number of chickens I have in the coop. However, I don't worry too much because they have a nice run, free range 8 hours a day and have a covered area from the weather. They are never contained in the coop.

10 chickens and room for lots more. I own 1 and my mom and her b/f own the rest. Wait till I move on the property my mom bought. *evil laugh*

Right now, just 14 with room for about 30. However, turn the clock back 40 years and there was room for 3 or four barns of a a few thousand each. Never saw it with my own eyes though
