1. Decide the size of your Structure for the Chickens
As a general rule of thumb
, chickens needs 3-4 square feet of space of structure per chicken. So if you’re planning to have 3, then you’ll need 12 square foot Structure (3×4, 6×2, or bigger).
However, if you plan to coop them all the time, you need at least 10 feet each.
If the space is too small, your chickens will not be happy. The structure will get smelly real fast, your chicken will be stressed out, they will start pecking each other, they will get sick, and eventually, die.
You can technically provide less than 3 square feet per chicken, BUT they must be outdoors most of the time.
For smaller bantam breeds, you’ll only need 2 square feet instead of 4.
