Hello every one

I got an old boat trailer on Sunday for about 100 USD, not including the gas or the hitch that I had to buy. I plan on building a chicken coop so I can do cell grazing with non permanent fencing. I want to build a chicken coop on the trailer. my question is how many chicken can I reasonably fit in a space that is about 48 inches wide by 100 inches long I know that this depends on how tall the chicken coop is.

Thanks

Are they confined to the trailer, or let out each day? If let out, you can hold a lot more.

The plan it to let them out in the morning and put them back in the evening.

If they're only roosting in there at night I think you can fit at least 30.

you need a foot of roost bar per bird, roughly. A little less for small birds or cold weather, a little more for larger birds and warm weather.

 
I agree. Here's the link: http://richsoil.com/cards
