Hello all, I'm looking at getting some Japanese quail in the spring and have been trying to design a coop. I am based in the UK and the quail will be kept outside. I've been playing around with Google SketchUp and have the following design. The coop will use 1/2 inch wire for the walls & floor and clad with wood at the back for draught protection. The roof I'm planning on using is a translucent polycarbonate roofing sheet to allow the light through but keep the worst of the rain out. The dimensions are 2.40m wide, 1.80m tall & 1.00m deep. My main questions are, Is the nesting box space too big? I've read that Japanese quail will mostly stay outside and I will place cover for them in the outside part of the run) Would I be better making it smaller to give them more outside space? Will they use a ramp to access the space above the nesting box as I've heard that they aren't keen on using ramps? How many quail would a coop of these dimensions comfortably house? Any advice would be much appreciated as I do my research before becoming a quail owner in the spring. Thanks in advance.
