I have 7 chicks coming at the end of May. I am new to raising chickens and need some advise on how big the hen house should be. We live in Texas on the Gulf Coast, so cold isn't really an issue, but it does get awfully hot in the summer. Should I put a fan in the henhouse to keep them cool?

I have read that you need 3 to 4 sq feet per hen As far as cooling goes ,here is a link to another board. It looks like you have some fellow Texan's commenting there. http://www.backyardchickens.com/t/435552/cooling-fans-in-chicken-coop
