I have 8 chicks. Two are roosters, so when they start crowing I'm sending one to freezer camp. That leaves 7 chickens. My coop is 4x4 and my run is 8x4. I bought 8 chickens on the idea that some would die, and some would be roosters, but they are all happy and healthy and hens. Not that I *want* any to die, but it seems like everybody tends to lose a chick or two before they're grown, so I was planning ahead. NOW WHAT? I can't spend any more on a new coop. Hell, most of my materials were scrounged anyway.
