I am new to this and I am building a coop to be ready for buying some chickens. Can anyone tell me how much space ie length one should allow per bird for a chicken roost ?

Roughly about 30cm is the correct measurement for standard size chickens and around 22 to 25cm for bantam breeds. Hope this helps, mate.
I allowed 10 in. minimum per chicken for mine.
Best of luck to you and your flock! I'm sure they will love the coop no matter what design you choose
