a BIG coop underway

i've mentioned it before and now it is finally happening! 50 hens 20 roosters and hoping for a loft for the guineas. turkey people, do you think if we made the loft strong enough it would hold the turkeys up? that would be great.
if any one has suggestions for the turkeys i would be glad to hear them. :D :D :D

Re: a BIG coop underway

My Toms sit on either the roost beside the chickens which is a 2x4 on edge about 30" off the ground or a 2x4 that is flat stretching between a low shelf and a pen wall about 4 feet off the ground.  The hens go into another house and 2 sit on the frame for the front of the breeding pens which again is a 2x4 supported every 4 feet by the pen walls.  The other 2 sit on top of the rabbit hutch which is 6 feet up.  They'll find a place that suits them.

Re: a BIG coop underway

Young turkeys love roosting up high- as high as they can get- but toms especially reach a weight and size when they cannot get up too high.  Quite nice as they can't get over low fences anymore but I have had heritage breed turkey toms injure their legs I believe jumping down from high roosts.  A few days in a crate not being able to move too much usually fixes the problem and they seem to learn their lesson.  Hens seem always able to fly up and down from high roosts and over fences.

Re: a BIG coop underway

do you keep your chickens and turkeys together?
