    My cages will be off the ground, in an enclosed area so they can be in the grass if they want to. If I put the cages about a foot high, with a ramp, will they go in there at night? Or will they try to stay outside their cages?
    I already have to make the chickens go in their coop, I don't want the extra aggravation of trying to make 200 quail go in also.
    Any help would be appreciated!

    They will not go into a coop at night.....just build shelters like lean-tos and like dog houses that will give them shelter...they will go in there when needed.
