Chickens in the Spring

Jürgen told me I can have chickens next spring.  In the meantime we are thinking about this chicken coop I found on Amazon.  I am wondering if we should get 3 chickens, or as many as 6.  There are 7 people in my family.  If we get 3 birds, we will only have enough eggs to maybe eat one breakfast a week.  But I don't think this coop will hold more than 4 Brahma chickens.  Maybe 4 chickens?  I'll most likely let them free range in my big garden.  I’ve never had chickens before.  Some of my friends  have chickens.  Any advice? How much space do they need?  What kind of chicken breed is best?
