I have a 35 sq ft chicken tractor with a 7 ft long roost bar. How many birds would you humanely keep in a chicken tractor this size, moving it every day?

I have been free ranging but had a dog attack this morning and I know they will be back for more, so I can't free range until I get my property fenced in. Now...

Well I only have three left so I guess I will be fine. It's illegal to shoot animals that aren't harming humans unless you make at least 1000 dollars taxable income from your livestock you are protecting in my area... I plan on building a run asap and fencing in my yard before the end of next spring. I probably won't build my flock back up until then. I had 6 birds that were roosting in the coop but free ranging all day. I just don't want to risk it for a while because whatever got my birds will be back for more.
