Quote:Actually you make a good point. They do get big. I ordered some due to arrive this week, i guess i might need to make adjusments for when there full grown.
Hopefully someone will be able to help us out.

So I had all these same questions and talked to Zunibee about them. This is what we came up with.

1 perch 2' off the floor, no higher since they are so big you don't want them jumping down and hurting themselves.

Chicken door should be 18" high, I think mine is 14" wide.

Nesting boxes are going to be 18"x18"x18" when I finally get them built. My Jerseys are still chicks so I'm not in any big hurry.
