    We made the door to our turkey hut, 4 ft tall. This way I can get out to the yard if needed....fairly easy.

    I have a broody Buff & Bourban turkey that squeezes her big butt through a 10x10" chicken coop door (little door inside the big door), so any thing bigger than that should be fine! [​IMG]

    Quote:HaHa.. That's a tiny hole for a turkey...

    Since your Bourbon can get thru that ,, I'll make mine about 20" high by 14" wide then.. that should be good .. if not.. I can always cut bigger...

    Thanks again..

    It was built with the intentions of haveing just one tom and and one hen. There are now 3 hens...so we will be increasing the size when the NEW coop is done, hopefully in a few weeks.

    15 x 15 would be a small door, 18 x 18 would be better.

    Great white and BB bronze need one about 20 x 20 as they get older.
