    Hi everybody,

    I've tried searching for this info, but so far I've been unsuccessful.

    My coop will have part of the run underneath it.

    I have what will be some large chickens, and I'm wondering what the height of the run area under the coop should be.

    Thanks in advance.

    I believe I read 1.5 feet. I made mine 2 feet just to give a little extra.
     
  3. I'd go at least 2 feet [​IMG]

    I left 2' under mine - that way there's room enough to hang a feeder...

    I made mine tall enough to get a rake under for cleaning without having to get on my hands & knees.

    Use a hanging feeder to gauge how high. Min is 2' also
