    cooped up
    The guys are starting the coop despite the rain, and the one framing, just came in and asked how big should the pop door frame out be?
    I haven't a clue if there is a standard size for standard size birds( Buff Orps, Dominiques, EE), but knew where to come to find the answer.

    My nephew and his friend are carpenters-in- training(not what its really called), and it looks great so far.

    we are doing a playhouse 8x8 wood coop and large run.

    I don't know either, but I'd make it at least 16" X 16" for those birds. Buff Orps are big girls!
