    We started our new coop. This is it.
    [​IMG]
    It will take us a while to totally complete. It will have 7 6'x6' " 'stalls' with 20'x 6' runs on each side (14 total) and a 5' walkway down the center. The runs will be covered with netting. We hope to have both turkeys and chickens and maybe even pheasants in it. Our plan is to have rare breeds for hatching eggs.

    That's funny!! We are thinking about calling it The Gobbley Coop. It is our 4th and largest coop. We also have an 8'x8' , a 12'x 20', and a 10'x10' , a small brooder house, and a couple other covered small places for chickens. We have about 200 chickens and turkeys here now. Can't wait to get it finished. I can fill it.
