After some reading, I'm going with 12". My hippie is they don't get enough energy to injure themselves when they jump.
Ask me in about two months how that works out!
Came home to 5 out a day out two early.
they can break necks when they jump, but my experience was that it happened to little to worry about,
if you keep a schedule of tending to them, I do not mean time frame, it is how you do it...if something is out of place they will know that and spook easily..
y belief is that quail are not as fragile as most think they are...mine went thru some nasty winters with nothing more then plastic cover
