    The seller is totally wrong, six to eight chickens would not be happy or have enough room in that coop!!! I keep two standard sized chickens, they spend most of their time in their run, and it is 12 X 3 feet.

    For a large breed of chicken such as an Orpington or a Black Sex Link I would say two could live comfortably, three would be pushing it. That is if they were going to be spending all their time in there, if they were to be let out for 2+ hours a day free-ranging around a garden then I would say three large chickens could live in there.

    For bantam varieties, four or five could live in there happily enough.

    4 or 5 🙂

    About 3 or 4. You don’t want them to be too squished! ♥

    About 3 heavy birds, maybe 4-5 smaller chickens, a few more bantams.

    it entirely depends on the size of the chicken. i read once that each standard size bird would need about 4square feet per chicken and bantams would need 2-3 square feet, depending on the kind. i wouldn’t keep more than 6 standards birds in there, or ten bantams. if your over crowed them, they will get stressed, eat eggs or even go cannibalistic.

    just to say youd be suprised that hens dont like space when they sleep but id say around 3 hens what worrys me is your run space. Your going to end upp with alot off feather pecking if you dont let them out of your run.

    I would say 5-6 small chickens maximum or 3 larger birds.

    Personally I wouldn’t recommend a chicken house such as this unless its movable and it looks quite heavy? Chickens soon eat all the grass and wreck the ground by scratting and dust bathing, it would need moving every 1-2 weeks onto new ground.
