If I have a big chicken, how big should the door to the coop be?
My Leghorn rooster is pretty big and I have a door that is approx. 9" wide by 12" tall.
The chickens will bend down to get through the door if need be. I don't no where you live but one consideration to ponder is during the winter the pop door will let in a cold draught. I have a big pop door & it got really cold this winter & I had to keep the door blocked off.
Quote:Yep - if you're in a cold winter area OP, then make it the smallest you can to where it's still comfortable for you birds to access. My largest bird is a buff orp - and my pop door is 10 x 12. Breeds like brahmas and JGs would probably need a little larger...
That's a beautiful Leghorn! Wow!!!!
Thanks! I'm cutting my door today.
