Is this called the pop door or poopdoor or popdoor--anyway, I tried searching and none of these worked!


Need to know approximate size to cut. Does it need to be any bigger for jersey giants?

Thanks a bunch!

I am not sure what it is called but by looking at some of mine I vote for poopdoor.

Ours are around 12" x 16" and they are plenty big enough for chickens, ducks, guineas, and turkeys. The geese have a bit of problem with them. Also our 90 lb dog can get in and out, however it is a very tight fit.

Oh my gosh! I never thought about that! I did get stuck in mine once, but I had a nice BIG window I could get out!

This is for DD and her biggest is the Jersey Giant--hopefully her doggie won't need to fit!

The door that the chickens go out is called the pop hole and the door you use to clean out the coop is called the clean-out or poop door.

My pop hole is roughly 12x14 and it's plenty big enough for my brahmas. Jersey Giants may need a bigger door.
