    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.

    The easy answer is alot. lol. I really dont go out there and count em. If i had to guess I would say about 50 total in the coop/run, and150 in the brooder right now. Ill have soild numbers on everything after npip testing.

    Took our other lay boxes out completely as our girls wont touch them. Once we get moved the permanent boxes will be built out off the back. Cannot add them pre moveunless i want to pony up about a grand in oversize permits, which i dont. lol

    Wow, you have lots of birds. It's funny to see the turkey roosting near to the chickens. [​IMG]
    They have lots of roosting space.

    Are all those hens trying to use the three nesting boxes?

    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.

    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)
