Quail Breeding Cages (Need some ideas)

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I'm going to start constructing cages for my quail (I'm really excited). I need some ideas to build the cages first. Any input would be appreciated thanks.

Check out the pen sticky at the top of this section.  Lots of ideas.

I still breed Sicilian Buttercups, and Coturnix quail - As Big As You Can Get Them.  No, I stilll don't sell eggs or birds.

I would make some big wire pens that set on a shelf. That would make good breeder pens, for colony pens I use 12x2 pens with one side that has 2 wire windows, and the end is wire.

Thanks!!! How much of a hieght does the cage need to be? Some cages are 1 foot - 3 feet tall?

I keep mine around 2 feet tall, but 1 foot would be enough. If you go higher than 2 feet they will boink and break their necks on the roof. For my bobwhites I have trampoline netting at the top so they can't get hurt.
