i am planning on raising coturnix quail in the spring, my plans are to raise them in a 10 foot by 20 foot aviary style pen with a 8 foot by 8 foot three sided enclosure on the one end to allow for easy food and water placement for me and shelter for them. it will be approx 1 to 2 foot off the ground over the entire enclosure. thinking of 1/2" by 1/2" wire on bottom (would i be ok with 1/2" x 1") the sides and top will be chicken wire. i have read about using boards up 8-12" on the sides so that the quail cant get their heads out. i know that most of the people i have talked to so far raise in cages anyone with any experience or advice about this type of pen? should i still try to incorporate cages somehow?
