Building a New Coop for My Growing Turkeys, Part II

Soon, my growing turkeys will move into a beautiful new coop.

Here at the farm, my property manager, Doug White, and Pete Sherpa from my outdoor grounds crew, have been working hard to complete the structure located at one end of the chicken yard. The 10-foot by 10-foot coop has windows on all sides for proper ventilation. I also wanted it to be tall, so it could house a ladder upon which the turkeys could roost. At the front is a large and very practical sliding barn door, which slides open and closed easily, stays put, and is out of the way. And on one side, a turkey-sized hinged door, which will offer the birds another way in and out of their new home.

Here are more photos, enjoy.
