outdoor chicken coop

How big does a chicken coop need to be?
Because chickens spend most of their active time outside of the chicken coop, generally 2-3 square feet per chicken is sufficient space. Remember, you will need to provide space to roost at night and space for the nesting boxes.If you plan on keeping them cooped up full-time then 8-10 square feet per chicken would do,counting the outside run. In this case, more is always better.If you are planning on buying or building a mobile chicken coop,space requirement is minimized because it offers you the ability to frequently move the coop and chickens onto fresh ground.
