Four hens of any dual purpose breed should work, then. I'm definitely partial to the Cochins, as they're very feminine looking birds and tend to be quiet and unassuming without being skittish.
My property came with a 10' X 10' building that is at least 7' high, has a sturdy wooden door and is on a concrete slab, so I just added the screen door, nest boxes and outdoor pen.
