I need to know because we are going to have extra space under the coop and need to know how tall it should be off the ground

Thanks for the help

Depends on the breed, whether they are bantams, and whether there will be a rooster, which are usually taller than their hens. Probably the average large fowl hen is around 1.5 to 2 feet tall, but that's a very general number. Brahmas, for example, get bigger than that (I believe,) and Jersey Giants certainly do.

Yes no matter what we will get under there (there will be a wooden door under in that spot) and no rooster the largest will be a hen fowl
