    What is the typical full standing height of buff orpingtons. I am building a coop and need to know the minimum height I can make it. The chickens going inside it are buff orpingtons. So that's why I'm asking about that particular breed.

    I am not totally sure on the height of the orpingtons, mine are just now about 6 weeks old . . . . I do know as adults they are 8-10 lbs if I am not mistaken. I would say probably 3 feet tall may be as short as you want to go for the run . . . . but then again I am no pro . . .

    At 6 weeks my orp girls are probably 8in tall or so when they stand straight up? I haven't measured them but am looking at a ruler here at my desk and trying to decide about what is close to their height. . . they are prob a bit taller than that but [​IMG]

    Now I am going to have to measure them at some point . . . LOL
