    I went down this morning and took some pics of the coop. It is a bit nasty out this morning so bear with me. I built this coop for free from wood I scavenged from construction sites. Also the bucket feeders are fast and easy to make if you have access to free 5 gallon buckets.

    Here is the front of the coop with the big door open.

    Here we are looking into the front door at my homemade bucket feeder and nest boxes.

    Here is a shot to the right of the roosting boards and dropping collector.

    I built the roosting boards with notches so they will just lift up for easy clean-up. Tha dropping board will just lift right up and out if need be but I usually just shovel the litter off.

    I just had to take a photo of my standard bronze he looks great when he is all puffed. Btw my 6 year old son will be selling fertile turkey eggs in the breeding season!

    Thanks for looking
