    That looks pretty good. Is that two levels? If so, do you have a board or something to catch the poop from the upper level? I don't think the quails below would appreciate being bombed. [​IMG]

    I dont have quail below. I am planning to have two pigeons at the second level so that I can use the pigeons to sit on quail eggs :) .

    Pigeons to sit quail eggs. Now that's an idea I like! Anyone have experience with this? Or perhaps with doves sitting the eggs?

    I watched a YouTube video, they done it under pigeon and chicken. Chicken is risky, but pigeon is fine. They put 8 eggs under pigeon plus two pigeon eggs, 10 total
