trust me,, he is wrong, you are right.
in fact, you might be making it too small..
I have a concrete mixer if you want to pour a floor .
I would pour a slab, then lay the block on the edge of it, then build on top of the block.
I raised the sill of the door a few inches higher than the floor. made the door to swing in.. so no matter how much snow we get, I don't have to shovel snow to open the door.
I locked the coop up last night, left the pop door open so the chickens can still go outdoors. this morning there is a chicken on the lawn.. IDK, did she fly over the fence ? was she not inside the coop after dark ?
