    I have a three foot long and two and a half feet wide cage id like to keep a trio of seramas in...is that too small? Would two fit better? Breeding season is around the corner and im trying to separate them. (coop is coming soon, a tree fell on it and smashed it to pieces, luckily everyone was out of it. Right now everyone is housed in a 12x12 stall.)

    That is really tiny. If that was just their coop, and they had a fenced off run area, it would be fine. That is the size of my quarantine coop, and I can't imagine any chickens living in it full time. Do they free-range?

    Like chookchick said. Too small exc for inside of a run of min 30 sq ft.
