I am a newbie building my first chicken coop and I had a couple of questions... I am planning on having 6 hens (plymouth rocks), so I was building an 8 x 8 coop. I am hoping that will leave me enough room to expand to more chickens if I decide to, without building another coop. I am in Southern Alabama, so I was planning on building the coop about 2-3 feet off of the ground. Is it better to put the chicken door in the floor of the coop where the ladder is under the coop or on the front of the coop? Also, does it matter if the roost in the coop are over the opening for the nesting boxes on the side? Thanks for any advice you can give. Hopefully I can put pictures of my plans up for comments and help soon.
