Thanks for everyone's advice and help so far! I've built an incubator based off of MissPrissy's, and we've got an old terrarium we can use for a brooder. I've held off on getting eggs because we wanted to get the quail cage built! We started it this weekend. I drew out the design beforehand, but there's been quite a bit of in-progress guesswork (I've come to realize that 2x4s are not exactly 2"x4"! Gah!). It'll be two cages, one on top of the other, with an enclosed shelter area on the left. 2' wide and 6' across with slide-out poop trays. I'm still trying to find a place that sells the coated hardware cloth for the bottoms, but hopefully I'll find some soon. So here's our framing in progress! My fiance's never built anything before, and I haven't built anything in a while, so we've been plotting when we can next get away to the garage to build. It's fun!
