We often get asked how many chickens can fit inside our coops and how that compares to other coops on the market. In our opinion you should ignore the suggested stocking capacity given by manufacturers and go with what suits you. The floor area is 5 square meters, and about 3.6m of roosts – in other words 6-8 chickens can live in there full time, and up to 16 chickens can sleep in there if the tractor is used for overnight accommodation only. Remember – the higher the stocking density, the more mess the chickens make, the more often the chicken tractor needs to be moved/cleaned and the more aggressive the birds will be towards each other. So how many chickens? Always – the lower the stocking density the better – and this genuine McCallum Made products offer the most space for the dollar on the market.
