    I have just finished buliding my coop, I built one large coop building 12'x12'x7'tall complete with nesting boxes and roost for 50 chickens with two seperate runs that are 12'x12'x7' tall totally screened in.
    It is in an L shape with the chickens in the coop and 1 run and the turkeys in the other run with no access to the coop, my question is will it be safe for my turkeys to be raised in this manner without worry of them contracting blackhead disease ?

    Please help me with this question if you can, thank you.
