Hello all! We are newer to the central coast; transplants from WI. The house we purchased came with a very sturdy coop and enclosed run about 10x12' in total size. My parents raised meat and laying chickens, so I understand the basics of their care. But, it was a different climate in the upper midwest. We are going to start with full-size chickens instead of chicks.
Two questions - 1. How many chickens would be a good fit for a 10x12' coop? 2. What advice do you for a newby?
