How Big Does A Chicken Coop Need To Be?

Does it matter how big the chicken coop is?

Yes, it does matter how big your coop is. Overcrowded chickens are not happy chickens, and unhappy chickens are not healthy chickens. To gauge the right size coop for your flock, assume each chicken should have about 4 square feet of space. This could be coop and run space combined. Just be sure they have enough space to move around and scratch.

What Style of Coop Should I Choose for 40 Chickens?

Are you having some trouble knowing what to look for in a chicken coop?

Here are some things to consider when choosing your style of chicken coop for 40 chickens…

Size -Do you have ample space on the property? Are your chickens going to have enough coop space? Find a coop that can give your chickens enough scratch room while maximizing the amount of space you have on your property. Think of decreasing the number of chickens you have if you can’t properly give them the space they need.

Security – Another important factor to consider for your chickens is their safety. How secure is their coop? Would the flimsy wire of their coop be easily torn by a fox or another hungry predator? Are the windows secure, and would it be wise to enclose their run to ensure hawks don’t snatch up your hens?

Climate – How will your coop hold up in extreme temperatures? Would it be wise to invest in an insulated coop to keep your chickens cool in hot weather? What about when it snows? Consider climate-controlled features for your coop, especially if you live in areas with hot summers or cold winters.
