    I Thought An Aviary Was A Large Pen That Quail Could Fly In, Something At Least 6-8 Feet In Height...but I've Seen Some On Here Call Small Cages Aviaries? Some With Aviaries Would You Please Post Some Pictures? Do Quail Do Better In This Type Of Cage?

    An aviary is a large enclosure used to maintain birds in captivity. I guess "large" is open to interpretation.

    I always thought of an Aviary as something you could walk in.

    When we build our Peafowl Aviary, we designed it to be just that.........Something to walk in.

    Although this is not a quail aviary and I know you probably don't need anything his size but here are pics of our peafowl aviary. I think that ours is a medium size.

    The measurements are 28 feet long - 10 feet wide - 8 feet tall.

    I knew a guy that had an 8' long x8' wide x6' tall pen that had quite a few bobs, it worked great. He put whole, cut off, small (about 6') evergreens in there for cover.

    an avairy is - "An aviary is a large enclosure for confining birds. Unlike cages, aviaries allow birds a larger living space where they can fly; hence, aviaries are also sometimes known as flight cages. Aviaries often contain plants and shrubbery to simulate a natural environment." - direct from wiki


    it can be of any size really, imo larger the better
