I'm starting to prep a site for our new coop. I've been looking at a ton of designs and I've noticed that a lot of the coops out there seem pretty tall. Other than potentially adding taller roosts, is there a reason for it? I was planning to make the coop itself about 5'x5'x 3' tall and set off the ground by 2'. We're going to have 4 chicks to go into it when it's done and I want them to be as happy and comfy as possible.
My plan is to modify this design http://www.backyardchickens.com/a/littlefeats-the-feather-factory-chicken-coop
