    I am figuring out how big I should make my door for the chickens to go in their coop at night and to lock up.

    I would love for everyone to tell me the size of theirs, height and width, so I know which is which.

    Thanks bunches.

    Hi, Jill. Mine is 13" wide and 14" tall. Glad I made it that tall for my big ol' Barred Rock rooster who came along later on. Poor boy still has to duck his head so he doesn't scrape his giant comb, LOL.
