    i just moved into a new house, and the previous owners who used to keep rabbits left us her old home made hutch. it's made of chicken wire and timber, and has a tin roof. i managed to replace the back, which was falling apart, with harware cloth. anyway, the hutch is in my chicken run, and i was wondering if there's a chance can leave it there and keep quail in it. if not, cann i keep them in a portable tractor on the lawn?

    thanks

    definitely keep them away from chicken area b/c of coryza among other issues.
    i've heard of people using a tractor with them .just be careful of wire size ..........

    JAMES DRAG THAT BADBOY OUTTA THE CHICKEN COUP, CLEAN IT UP WITH A NICE BLEACH SOAK AND THEN WRAP IT ALL THE WAY ON HARDWARE CLOTH AND YOU HAVE A WONDERFUL QUAIL PEN [​IMG]
