I've got a pen I'm re-building, wire floor but it sits on the ground. 4' x 8' and 2' tall. the end 2' (+/-) is boxed in, with slanted roof to keep the rain off, but I haven't put a 'front' on the box yet. I'm planning on putting a plastic tub/tote in there with bedding, what i'm wondering is, will quail 'go to bed' like chickens do? and if so, should I close it in or is open fine? i'm in sw virginia, and so far this year we've had .5" or snow and 3 days that stayed below freezing all day. LOL granted this isn't our normal weather, but it's usually very similar. add a few inches of snow and a few weeks of colder weather. it's not exactly done yet, but if you can tell in the pic, it's WET out there. LOL and power tools don't tend to like getting wet. (not to mention i don't have any place on my property that is FLAT... as you can also probably tell LOL) so once it dries off, the top and roof will be hinged for access and a piece of fiberglass roofing put on the house part, the sides are solid.
