Finally, pictures of my coturnix quail pens!!

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

Finally got around to taking some pictures of my pens! I encorparated ideas from different ideas i have seen on here and a few of my own as well!! Enjoy!!

The two cages with one more slot for another cage when i feel like building another one!!

The waterers are 2 1/2" pvc pipe with a cap on one end and an elbow on the other. I cut one end of the elbow down to almost flush for the bottle to sit in, and i cut a 16" slot in the pvc that is 1 1/2" wide for the quail to drink out of. The waterers are zip tied to the cage.http://i49.photobucket.com/albums/f276/tulebustin/100_2151.jpg

The feeders are made from the same concept, only both ends are capped.

The wire in the areas where the quail eat/drink are actually closet organizer wire racks that i cut down, i had some old ones laying around the yard so i used them. To prevent the "head bonking" that everyone talks about i used shade cloth for the tops of the cages and secured them with 1" boards, its worked like a charm and lets the heat out on those hot days!! I also took some old closet sliding doors, cut them down, and they are the poop trays that slide under the pens on plywood cleats.

Take care everyone!!...............Jason

Wow!!  Very nice!  I really like the food and water on the outside - it keeps things cleaner and does not take away from cage space on the inside.  You have good ideas and I like the recycling of closet doors and shelving.
