Multiple quail pens and cages
Featured Stories on BackYard Chickens
Post #6 is what I'm doing for our quail. I've been following several of his videos and like them quite a bit. I'm dong the same thing with the PVC (3/4 inch seems to be just fine). It's very modular so I can continue to add levels as needed.
Right now I have one 4x2 cage that's divided in the middle. In each 2x2 section I have one rooster and 3 hen. They're between 7-8 weeks old. They haven't started laying yet but the plan for when they do is to incubate until I have three 4x2 cages with the same set up. And then have a fourth grow out 4x2 cage with no divider. With the PVC it's pretty simple to just add a level. I'll take a pick when I get a chance.
Bottom is the divided 4x2 with the quail. The top is an undivided 4x2 that will be a grow out cage. I had simply wrapped some tarp on both cages for a bit of a rain cover. However I'll be updating that to a plastic cover similar to what you see over the PVC rabbit hutch to the top left. I'll add this when I get to my top layer. May also use this material underneath to catch the droppings as it would be easy to clean.
I have a solar powered spot light over each side on the bottom for some extra light. As you can see in picture #2, it is modular so I can add the same level again and again as high as I need to go.
