Welcome to Backyardchickens.com aka BYC!
We are glad you joined our flock.
Jump right in and make yourself at home.
Your chicken coop can be how ever high or low to the ground you want it to be.
There are no set rules...it's all preference.

A lot of chicken tractors and smaller coop/run combinations have the coops that high off the ground. The chickens don't care (and in fact may actually like getting up higher, especially when they're heading in to roost).
Hi Kenny and welcome to BYC. I have one coop that is 1m off the ground. The door open downwards, increasing square footage and negating the need for a ramp as the birds simply fly onto the opened door and then walk into the coop.
