    I go by ComputerGuy but my name is Ben. We live in Alabama on 2 acres and have quite the zoo!

    We have 3 separate coops, 3 runs and a couple of pens. For chickens we have Golden Buffs, White Leg Horns, Rhode Island Reds, Americanos, and a few Bandies. Approx 45 chickens total.

    We also have Bronze and White Turkeys. A total of 14 of them.

    A 3 different kinds of Guinies! Plus rabbits, dogs, cats, fish and tons of eggs!

    Welcome!

    Rather then space any other reasons for separation of the flocks?

    The 2 coops and pens are shared. The only separation is the turkeys, and the guinies.

    Image looking from left to right. Far left is a run 20 feet by 12 and 6 foot high. To the right of it is a old 8 by 8 shed with laying boxes and perch poles. There is a small door to get into it from the pen. On the other side of the shed is another door leading to another smaller run, about 15 feet by 15 feet with another coop that is 8 by 4 by 5.

    Both runs have doors leading into them.
