| In Brooder, I saw advertisements selling 8x8 chicken coops for up to 30 chickens.
Super Coop 8x10. Horizon Structures Super Coop is the bigger cousin of our best-selling Quaker model. This model is the perfect chicken coop for 4045 chickens.
You need at least 120 square meters for 30 chickens. A 10x12 chicken coop, for example. But if you’re going to have more, I’d build it a little bigger.
Personally, I wouldn’t have more than 34 chickens in this chicken coop. You can choose anything between the two. Remember, the less you have (i.e. the more space), the better they will be held and the better they will feel.
There are a few things to consider when it comes to space requirements. The simple answer is that if you have 90 square feet or more of outdoor space that they normally have access to, you can keep 9 full-sized chickens in a 6x6 coop.
For chickens who want to always be indoors (never outdoors) while running, increase this number to 10 square meters per bird. So now the 4 chickens need a 42 x 42 foot chicken coop / coop. It is always best to give them some time outdoors each day to look for bugs and get some fresh air.
The chicken farm should be at least 3 square meters per chicken. To continue with our example of six chickens, the chicken coop should be at least 18 square feet.
The minimum rule of thumb is around 2-3 square meters per chicken in the chicken farm and 8-10 square meters per chicken in an outdoor enclosure. More square meters is better. The footprint of a flock of chickens can lead to stress, cannibalism, pecking and sometimes even ■■■■■.
Small nest for up to 10 chickens Medium nest for up to 20 chickens The large nest offers space for up to 45 chickens.
As a general rule, AT LEAST 4 m2 per hen in the stable and 10 m2 per hen on the farm. There are many different things that go into these numbers.
Chickens don’t need grass, but they are flock so they need company. They will itch all over and you can make their life more interesting by putting down mulch, bark, and straw so they can take their time.
It must contain feed and water tanks, a rest area and a nest for every three hens. A good coop should be large enough to collect eggs and comfortably collect manure, but a single coop can be much smaller.
Lock up at night.
Some sources say 3-4 square meters per hen, which equals 1011 hens in a 4x8 chicken coop. However, I have seen several websites promoting their 4x8 chicken coops which can hold 1,520 chickens. And their 4x6 stalls say they house 1,215 chickens.
For chickens’ health and comfort, the interior of a house should be at least 3.5 feet tall at the bottom of the house.
3 m2 per hen x 12 hens = 36 m2 of open house. This means you need a 1.80 x 2 meter open chicken coop for the 12 chickens and the necessary space for their furniture.
