I bought a homemade rabbit hutch , nice setup for my quail but I was wondering the wire is 1/2" x 1" squares, is that OK for my quail or should I put smaller wire over that??

Yes, you need to cover the wire with 1/4 or 1/2 inch hardware cloth to keep out snakes, mice, and paws of all kinds. Those hutches make great quail housing. I use one for my Bobs coop. You might also want to lock in the removeable tray in the bottom so nothing can pull it out or mess with it.

I just don't like to idea spend time looking for eggs every day. Do you have problem collect eggs with the setup?
