Finally got a few pics of the coop and run. Had to do some major repairs and lose the largest part of the run thanks to our horses.... Right now they are all sharing the 16x16 under the chicken wire while we arent home & right now they will be staying penned and accounted for untill our npip testing is done.

Nice coop makes for a happy flock and you sure have proved that! They have plenty of room, that's for sure. An even nicer assortment of chickens and turkey! Looks like you're doing a great job! Thanks for sharing.

Wow, you have lots of birds. It's funny to see the turkey roosting near to the chickens.
lol.png

They have lots of roosting space.

Are all those hens trying to use the three nesting boxes?
As of right now they are. We had a 12 hole aluminum lay box in there, cept they all think its a poop box, not a lay box :/ I put all 8 eggs from yesterday in the boxes that we left in there, maybe just maybe they will get the hint. Normally i have to watch were i walk since they have been layin in the beddin (horse beddin pellets)
