    On poultry websites, the recommended space per chicken is usually AT LEAST 1 sq. ft. for inside space and 2 sq. ft. for outdoor space, but I usually multiply that by two or more so they are comfortable! Hope I helped! [​IMG]

    I would, at a minimum, use three square feet per bird inside and seven square feet per bird outside. Any tighter than that and perhaps you should reconsider what you are up to. Birds like space and even though Bantams are small, they are flighty, and feisty. Both of these traits require space by me.

    Best to you and your trio,
