    Just curious if anyone wanted to share some pictures of their Chukar and or Quail pens and cages. I'm thinking about getting some quail soon and have too many ideas to decide on one and wanted to see what yall were working with. Here's my most recent built cage for a breeding pair of Chukars.

    One other note about the cage I posted is that I do have a door, that if you look hard enough you can see it in the back of the cage, that opens to close off the cage in half, in case work needs to be done on any of it, or if the birds need to be easily removed for whatever reason.

    Thanks, yea I built it. I recently starting making most of my cages out of all wire now, even though the wood/wire combos look way better. The only downside is that droppings can get caught up where the framing is on the floor.
