Great idea. Saves you from having to buy lumber for the uprights. Sounds like a neat project. Ask Pearl to take pictures please.
I don't have quail, but I've got Serama that lay quail sized eggs. They are fun to hard boil, bite sized. I tried making tiny deviled eggs once, but it was mostly a failure. The yolks are really large, so about half of the whites ended up being too thin to hold the eggy goodness. Still fun, though. My MIL said Oh, too much work!
so I know she was impressed.
What kind of quail are you thinking of getting?
You shouldn't have to put a light on them in the 30s if they are dry and protected from drafts. My bantams snuggle up on the roosts together, but we rarely get below 30 either.
Coturnix. I hear they are a lot friendlier then buttons. I have been looking at silver coturnix(just imported to the US in the past couple years)... I always want to start out with something expensive.

How many do you have?
I hope everyone who isn't feeling well gets well soon. We all know how impatient the hens are to be fed.
It's cold here too. Last winter, even when it was super cold, I never used a heat source.
