    Ok, so I just finished expanding my coop to 24'x18'. I have a cat tree, roosting branches,
    Dog crates, and a few other random decor. I have 32 hens, 2 Guineas, and a turkey in the enclosure. Suggestions???

    The 24x18 is their "run" space. They have a tuff shed for nesting. They are very happy now :)

    They have a 24' x 18' enclosure attached to an alley way which runs into a 10'x20' tuff shed. I'm out of town, so no pictures right now.

    Ok, so your coop is 10x20 feet and your run is 24x18 feet?

    What type of suggestions are you looking for?

    Oh, 10-20 is great.....was thinking those little plastic yard sheds.
    Will wait for pics of coop and run, inside and out, before making suggestions.
