    I am building a new coop. By reading older threads I came up for my design roosts 18" high with a 14" spacing from each other and the wall and 18" plus head space. The floor space is 48"X48" this gives them a 20" X 48" space just inside the door for them to make the 18" flutter jump to the front roosting 2X4. Does that seem adequate?

    chickens (once old enough) shouldn't have any trouble hopping up 18 inches.

    It might depend on the breed though... I have heard that maybe Silkies don't like hopping up. [​IMG]

    but my standards and bantams would have no trouble with that kind of set-up.

    Thanks for the reply. I figured it was okay but there would be nothing worse than building something the Girls were comfy in!
