The space requirement for housing mature chickens varies depending on a number of factors. Breed of bird, size of breed, are they in cages or open floor, and to soon degree the weather in the area. A safe number would be `1.5 to 3 square feet per bird as minimum. I do not recommend raising chicks in the same building as housing older birds.
