Holy moly you have a lot of quail! Did you move all of them into that gigantic pen? Where do you live? Do you get snow? How do they fare outside in that ginorous pen? I am very impressed!

I live in Alabama and no snow for us. I have 50 breesers in 6 small pens and the large flight pen is for mature flight ready birds for sale to  train dogs or for me to process and sale to restruants. It's new and only has about 100 birds so far, figure it will hold 400 or so.

Nice setup, Samg.  What watt heat lamp is that on the brooder, and how tall it the brooder?

Yes, the bottom pic.  Just gettin' ideas.  Gonna build an incubator and brooder this winter, and trying to get as many ideas and details as possible.  Thanks.

Here is mine. If you read the blog is is probably the easiest cage to construct. You can make it work for you and do it with no carpenter skills.

How high are your pens?

post #30 of 32
the 2x4 legs are cut at 4 feet and the pen is about a foot wide and tall so the bottom is about 3 feet off the ground, awesome height in my opinion but to each his own, any other questions about the build you can message me
