    I am looking for a mediuem size pen that can house bobwhites. I am looking to use them for dog training. How much room do they need. I am looking to house 25-50 birds or so.

    where are you located? It would be simple for us to build a flight pen for you. We are in Southeast Arkansas.​

    bob whites usually do better and are alot stronger in long pens. they only jump up a few feet and fly 20 or so feet. so a 6 by 6 by 12 would work good enough. I run mine at night a few times a night.
