What size chicken coop do I need for 6 chickens?
Also, how many chickens can you put in a 4x8 coop?
Some sources say 3 to 4 sq. ft. per chicken, which would equal 10-11 chickens in a 4x8 coop. However, I've seen several different websites advertising their 4x8 chicken coops can house 15-20 chickens.
One may also ask, how big of a chicken coop do I need for 4 chickens? So for 4 chickens that free range, you only need a coop/run area that measures about: 4 by 4 feet (16 square ft). But it is always best to give them as much space as you can. For chickens that will be inside the run all the time (never free ranging), you need to bump that number up to 10 square feet per bird.
One may also ask, what size chicken coop do you need for 10 chickens?
The rule of thumb on here is a MINIMUM of 4 square feet per chicken in the coop and 10 square feet per chicken in the run.
