    Here are a couple shots of the alleyway, you can see my "rooster boxes" where my extra roos wait their turn to see the gals.

    Pop up door on pulley:

    Door which opens into the coop. Yeah it is a pain when all the chips come out when the door closes, but it is more of a pain when one of the birds flies into the door and it opens and lets them out.....

    I have about 80 birds in the pens. The back pen is 8X16 and there is 30 in there.

    Sara, on the rooster boxes, if I could change anything about them it would be the doors. I would have hinges on the side instead of opening up.
