    My chickens are currently using pop doors that are about 12"x12" to get in and out of the coop. I'm thinking about sectioning off half the coop for a few heritage breed turkeys. I'm wondering how big of a door I would need for turkeys? I'm leaning toward the Narragansett breed.

    Maybe I should ask how big around your average turkey is?

    Ours are 12 by 18 inches, which is plenty big enough for the hens, our toms never go in the house.
