    I just got 10 A&M quail. They are almost two weeks old and I am planning on building them a rabbit hutch-style cage. I was wondering if it would be okay for me to use some cedar boards I have lying around. I read somewhere that you don't want to use cedar shavings because of the dust, but that wouldn't be an issue with the boards.

    Thanks for any input!
