Q & A / Do chickens require a lot of space?

Poultry Coops can fit into just about any size backyard. For 4 hens, a 3’x4′ Coop plus a “run” (a place for them to scratch around) that is roughly 3’x8′ is more than adequate. Most commercial birds are placed in cages (6-8 to a cage) where they can not turn around. You, on the other hand, will have very happy birds. “Chicken Tractors” are another option. They are portable coops that can be moved over the yard or garden plots, to give birds fresh bugs and greens–this also is a great way to mow the lawn!
