Hey! I am going to start building a new coop this weekend to accommodate 11 new chickens. It is going to be a 4' by 8' coop. The walls will be 8 feet high, but there will be an extra 2 feet between the rafters and ridge in the roof. So, 10 feet at the highest point. Here's my question: How high should i place the roost poles? I want to place them so they will be 4 feet across. Will placing them at 6', 7', and 8' be fine? Should I build them a ladder so they can get up easily... they are Barred Rocks. Also, how high off the ground should the nest box be? I know below the roost pole, but is between 4 and 5 feet too high? I didn't want to have to bend down to get the eggs... for my convenience lol. By the way, this is my second coop i've built... the first one i built wasnt so large. Just a 4 by 4 that was 4 feet high. So i couldnt walk in it. Anyways, give me your suggestions on my problems, thanks!
