I have seen people do the same in front of there nest boxes and the hens still used them, don't see why it wouldn't work for the pop door.

That makes a lot of sense! It's not a pop door, its a larger door that swings but I can close it most of the way and try that! Thanks,I'll see how it goes.

Can you cut a pop door into the larger door?

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

 

Quoting centrarchid:

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."
