    Well I would imagine it needs to be a few inches wider than your largest chicken.

    Just make sure it is big enough for your largest chook to get through easily.

    So, without having to take a tape measure to your largest chicken, I would suggest you make the chicken door about 12 inches wide and 15 inches tall. Unless you have Jersey Giants ..... then go bigger.
