    Now that I have learned to insert photo's, I thought I would show you a few of my coop to see what you think.
    The coop is 12'x12'x8' tall and the 2 run's are also 12'x12'x8'. one run is for the turkeys and do not have access to the chicken run, but they do have shelter. the other is of course for the chickens, I have made the nest boxes in hopes of expansion, because I know that is inevitable LOL. it is wired and has water and i recently laid a concrete floor in the chicken coop & run.
    I do plan to add a Rooster run to fatten up the boy's who are destin for the grill. and a breeding pen with an attached brooding area, and a larger run just for the meaties.

    Just wanted any advice from all you experts in here, I respect your opinions.

    I hope these chickens & Turkeys like the new Hotel.
