    This is a 4x5 breeding coop for a trio of Delawares. The run's not finished yet, so it's currently being used to house a brood of quail.

    Can I see some pics of the inside? I need to keep the cocks seperate from the hens and I need to know what to do about that. I also need to get a response from the sumatra and game chicken breeder to know what they use to keep the cocks seperate.

    Sorry, but "seriousbill" and I can't get back far enough to take a decent picture of the inside without the doors being open, and if the doors are open, the baby quail can get out. I can tell you that the only things inside are two nest boxes on the left and two roost poles on the right, boxes at 14x14 inches and the poles are placed at 16 and 32 in. high.

    Best of luck.

    This can be used for brooding with a hen, breeding, or isolation.

    This pen, inside my main coop can also be used for the same purposes.
