    we don't know how big the dimension on the door, from the coop to the run, should be. we have buff & partridge cochin bantams and they're only 4 weeks old. we haven't a clue how big they will grow up to be. any idea???? thanks!

    How tall are your chickens?? 18inches seems a little big, right? As soon as I cut the door to the coop and add a low perch, the girls are going in.

    What size to start with???

    My coop door is 12 high and 8 wide. My 60 lb aussie can even get in and out.
