    We made ours 12"x 12", mainly because it works with the kind of siding we chose for the outside.

    Ours is 12"x12", we have large breeds. Might be a bit big, but there's no traffic jams.

    However, I was suprpised to find that the 90 lbs GSD could get through it. I think he thought we were building him a dog house.

    Ours is 12" wide and 18" tall cos they are fat chickens [​IMG]

    They so need a treadmill [​IMG]


    But seriously, when we first built this for our first flock, they were all heavy breeds, so we elected to make the hole a little bigger so if they had a 3 Stooges routine going with the door they wouldnt get stuck to where we would have to Crisco them out.
