I am at max. capacity with 18 chickens and the coop that I have. They free-range all day. I desperately want more chickens - maybe even some that are not brahmas....DID I JUST SAY THAT?!? I just can't put my SO thru another coop build with his bad shoulders. Nor will my independant little mind allow me to ask him to fund another build. None of the current farm buildings are suitable for chickens. I do have a plan though. As soon as my jeep is payed off in March 2010 I'm going to buy a pre-fabricated building and adapt it for chickens. My SO took the last commercial chicken house on this farm down about three years ago. Probably a good thing or I'd be brainstorming on ways to adapt one of those.
