How much headroom do I need to give the chickens in their roost? In other words, how far from the cieling of the coop should the roost be at minimum? I have limited space so I am trying to maximize floorspace. Thanks
In my tractor they have about 16-18" above the roost, which is just about adequate (they're sexlinks) but I sure would not give 'em less, and more might be kinder. You can see how it looks to you on https://www.backyardchickens.com/web/viewblog.php?id=1642-tractor , scroll most of the way down for a view of the inside with a shot of a chicken on the roost.
