Havent put nest boxes in yet, this is the pen size, so this is their run, except for free ranging in the yard during the day, and I have 2 four foot poles running through the pen to roost on. -John confused

Its recomended to have 4 square feet per bird. 4x8=32 32/4=8 so 8 birds. That said, more space is better. Lok through the old posts in coops and equipment for more ideas.
