Cages

post #1 of 12

Well I've been thinking about cage ideas (quail) well I know I cant build anything lol, those rabbit hutches at the feed store are like 150$, I was thinking of buying this thing https://www.gqfmfg.com/store/comersus_viewItem.asp?idProduct=25#

but
then you'd need to buy the watering system and stuff. I'd be looking at like 700$ when all is said and done.

Then I saw this thing I thought it was really awesome but I don't see a pricing and I'm sure the prices are way up there. http://www.kulucka.com/eng/bildircinkafesleri.html


Then
I saw these on craigslist http://albany.craigslist.org/grd/1039217822.html .


Darn I don't know what to do, lol I'm sorry but this is more of me talking to myself then anything else lol.

I'dbuy those WAY before I'd buy those other two, smaller cages, i'd rather have them in bigger cages but that's me. I mean in the smaller ones if you had 3 hens and one roo and they could fit in there and not be stressed i tmight be okay but yep i like the ones on CL! WOW!!! GIMMIE!! LOL!

how many can you comfortably fit in the 30 x 16 x 18 cages and how many could you fit in the 48 x 24 x 25 cages? I used to remember how to figure it out but I don't anymore lol...

WOW!! Those cages are a steal!! I wish I lived close. You could each quail technically needs about 28 square inches... Figure a max of 17 in the first cage and a max of about 40 in the second cage...

Like I said, technically you could keep that many, but not recommended
