How much land does it take to raise 10000 chickens?

The amount of land required to raise 10000 chickens depends on the type of coop system used. There are a variety of housing systems to choose from, such as free-range and battery cage systems. Each system has its own space requirements.

Land of free range system to raise 10000 chickens

In a traditional free-range system, chickens have access to outdoor areas in addition to being raised indoors. The amount of land required for a free-range chicken coop depends on the space requirements of each chicken. Generally speaking, a free-range chicken will require approximately 0.8-1 square feet of space if raised indoors. So raising 10000 chickens would require 8000-10000 square feet of space. And if raised outdoors, a free-range chicken will need about 4-10 square feet of outdoor space. So, for 10000 chickens to be raised outdoors, you would need about 40000 to 100000 square feet of space.

Land of battery cage system to raise 10000 chickens

In a battery cage system, the chickens are kept in cages and the space required is relatively small compared to other systems. Typically, a battery cage system can hold 90-160 chickens, requiring approximately 80 to 90 square feet of space per cage. Therefore, for 10000 chickens, you need about 5000 to 8000 square feet of land, which is 460-750 square meters. Compared with free-range farming, it saves about 1.5 times the space.
