Chicken & Hen FAQs
How many hens can I keep per coop?
Keeping your hens and chickens happy and healthy should be your primary objective. Healthy hens produce better quality eggs, more frequently. Overcrowing your chickens prevents this but also may lead to fighting hens, as they jostle for space and also increases the likelihood of disease and infections. They also get too hot and, from overcrowding, leading to condensation in the coop and enivitably respiratory problems.
However, it is just as important not to have a coop that is too spacious. Chickens like to gather when roosting to share body heat and not having enough of them around to do this can lead to them being too cold.
So, how to work out how many hens per coop?
The minimum floor space required per chicken is 1/3 of a meter in the coop when roosting and one square meter per chicken when in the run.
