So I live in a suburban area and have a tiny backyard with limited available space. After researching chickens I just had to have some of my own, so we decided to repurpose an old wooden play house into a coop to save some time and money. The coop is about 4ftx4ft and has 2 nesting boxes attached to the outside with an opening through the window of the house for the girls to jump in. We are now moving on to making the run, my dad originally only wanted to make the run 4x4 but i convinced him to double it to be 8ft long and 4ft wide. Will this be enough space for 4 hens? Im thinking we will "free range" them in our yard when we are around and can semi monitor them but they will also need to spend a good amount of time just in their run and coop. Is this too cramped for 4 birds?
