Hello! I'm building a double quail aviary sometime soonish, but I would like some advice on breeds and size before I do. Now the plan is to have a 20ft by 10ft run split in half into two 10x10 runs. They'll probably end up bigger. We'll have tin buried under ground and up till about 1 ft. Or should I use wire underground to keep out foxes? Now, I wanted maybe two species (since I'll have two cages) with one being Jumbo quail for eggs and meat. How many Jumbo can I put in a 10x10ft aviary? And what should the male to female ratio be. Should I stick to just one breed? I have an incubator for hatching the eggs, so I don't need broody hens. For the other I was considering Californian quail, but I'm not sure yet. That or normal Japanese quail. Could anyone tell me how many of those I could place in a run? I don't want to over crowd them, but I would like more than a couple of quail. Now, I can make the run bigger if needed, I have the space, but this seems like the best size for materials without it getting too expensive. The runs will be surrounded by evergreens and I intend to plant many things including thornless blackberries. I do own chickens as well, but the chook run is about 50 Metres away from the quail runs (or where they will be). Do I still need to worry about them giving my quail diseases? Or is it fine if I wash my hands and keep an eye on my shoes? As for covering, should I have the entire roof of the pen covered (with tin or plastic sheeting over the wire), or can I get away with half covered, half wire (or light shade-cloth). Does it need to have a cover back wall as well? I'll fill the yards with pots and plastic igloos for hiding/laying spots, is that enough protection from wind and rain? The surrounding trees will always give the run at least a little shade. I live in Australia, by the way. Winter gets down to 20 F and Summer as high as 100 F or so. Thank you for taking the time to read my post and let me know if it should be placed elsewhere in the forum!
