How high is the inside of the coop? When Bobwhites get startled, they can and will jump straight up and injure themselves if the distance between the floor and ceiling is 18 inches.Ned to quails, need to know as much as possible! Please share your knowledge! Going to be getting them in about 1 week! Also, how many can you fit in a 3' by 4' coop?
Okay! Thanks, what about the other kind, what's it called? Can't think.If you are getting Bobwhites, you would be able to keep one pair, (1 male 1 female) in this amount of space, or just 3 females, or just 3 males.
Quote: It is about four feet tall. Thanks!
Thanks! I think the way you judge is great! That's probably what I would do. lol.coturnix cannot be free ranged even with clipped wings, they are very vulnerable to predation due to their small size and with clipped wings they will no longer be able to get away, not clipping would mean they would fly away but then you would lose them so just keep them encloseddon't know how many you can keep in a coop that size, I'll let others answer that! If it looks crowded it probably is, that is how I judge mine lol, I tend to judge by eye, if the birds are comfortable and can move about freely and no aggression is apparent then I'm happy that all is well, as for the chookshow high is the fence that they are jumping over? as they get bigger they will get heavier which may help to some extent but it does depend how high the fence is as they can still fly a bit if they need to also.
