Trying to come up with a pen that would work with our current backyard/patio. I've not settled on a breed, but I would like a decent layer, one who'll go easy on rookies, and who isn't really noisy. I like Campbells for their egg laying, but I'm open to others. Mostly I want to make sure that the pen I could build would be comfy for two of whichever. Want it to be short enough that I can clean it (5'6" here) and still be able to raise it a bit off the ground so the dogs can't annoy them too much. -thinking that I'll put doors on the sides rather than on top, this alone may solve the issue- But I'm not having the best luck in finding duck HEIGHTS, thus it's hard to figure minimum pen height needed for comfort. So, my question for all of you... What breed/s and their height/s have you had/seen? OR what pen height would you recommend for ___ breed? (and if there is a chart of this somewhere feel free to just post that with a great big DUH!) Thanks for any advice!
