    What size do I make the pop door? We are going to do one of those sliding up kind on a rope, but is it 12 wide by 14 high or 14 wide by 12 high?
    Thanks. Or different. Just regular 12x12? I think they're just regular chickens.

    Bigger than the biggest chicken.

    Make it taller than it is wide, just like the birds

    It's not that critical​

    14 high by 12 wide unless you have really big chickens...I dont think mine is 12x12 but it needs to be about 2 inches taller. Part of saturdays project.

    Thanks. They're only 4 weeks old so I have no idea what size they'll be. They're mutts so I don't even know what breed they are either. But they're just regular chicken type chickens, so I'm assuming they will be normal size.
