i only have 2 nesting boxes, and i started out with 5 hens. now i have 8, and they all find their place, although i should put in at least 1, if not 2 more. don't forget to include a nice heating lamp in there for the winter. you're gonna want a nice ceramic heat lamp that just gives off heat and no light, they cost about $50 for a decent one. we've tried using the ones that give off a little dark light and our chickens couldn't sleep, they are very light sensitive creatures.
i'll try to post some pics today. the main thing you want with a chicken coop is to elevate it off the ground, a nice fenced in run for them helps too. 3'x3' or 4'x4' should be good for 10 chickens, they just need some roosting boxes and perches and whatnot.
oh, and make sure there is a vent coming out of their sleeping house because they will poop in there and you don't want methane build up.
Thank you Jimmy
