How big is your pop door and how far from the floor is yours? I currently am building a new coop and i don’t want the pop door to be level with the floor. Right now the drawing is 6” from the floor, is that too high up?

The door in the Little Monitor Coop is only a few inches above the floor and should have been at least 6" up because bedding spills out.

You want enough room for a good layer of bedding. :)

6" or higher off the ground is better. I think the pop door should also be tall (like 18") so the chickens have headroom when they jump onto the edge of the door. Most of the pop doors on commercial coops seem way too small to me.

That’s what i was thinking when i drew it on but i was like idk that’s pretty high but i guess bedding does make sense that it won’t be that high up :)

Not the answer I was hoping for when I opened this to read, I think my dogs can get through an opening that size. I need to go look I don't think the pop door on the chicken house at dads is that big but I could be wrong.

It’s the door to the run and the run is going to secure so the only thing that should be able to get into the coop from that door is chickens 😂
