    Hello everyone, right now i just have 2 hens and really enjoy them. I just have a chick-n-hutch which is just right size for 2. I thought about getting at least 2 or 3 more. I am about to build a run about 10x30 but my question is will the coop be big enough for 5 birds if they will just be in there to lay. Thanks alot have a great day

    How big is the chick-n-hutch?
    You don't say where you live, for examply, mine have had to be confined to the coop the last two days and probably until Saturday due to bitter cold, so if they have to be confined inside the coop a few days or weeks (snow) this could be a problem
