My dad started talking about expanding the coop
, when we first got chickens I don't think he liked them as much as he does now. I don't know what brought this on, but I'm fine with him making the coop bigger.

I might need a barnyard, lol
Here is our coop -

I have been trying to get incubator there is one on ebay right now I want. The more you hatch the more room you need. How many chickens do you think this coop can hold right now.

you could probably get about 3 or 4 more girls. You dont want to over crowed. I am building a run that leads up the mountain and down so they have lots of room to roam.

I am talking about after. If before I think your at the limit. Do you know the dimensions of the coop?

Quote:Mine is not finished yet but its going to be over 8/12 feet tall by 10 feet wide. and the length is 10 feet. so I can get a good number of birds in there I think.
