    Nice! Just wondering how long did it take you to make all that and how much did it cost you?

    Each cage took about 30 minutes and is around 30 bucks each I believe...

    Those are nice. How tall are those cages, the cage itself?

    ok, I looked closer and saw the smaller wire on the bottom.

    What I do is buy 24" 1x1 wire and then cut the whole roll in half so that gives me one cage that is 11" and one that is 12" the whole thing is around 19" or so..

    I buy the 1/2" by the 25ft roll, cheaper. Normally by it by the 100' roll and that is even cheaper , but I wanted some today and that hardware store is not open.
    I use the 1/2" because of the tootsies and problems with snakes. My cages are outside. IWe use 1/2" on everything unless its 1/4" for the babies.

    I got a roll of 1/2" x 1/2" hardware cloth at my feed store. 36" height and 100' length...If I remember correctly I paid $87 for the roll.

    ETA: But this feed store is really cheap, I also bought a 150' roll of 1" hex chicken wire. It is 6' in height and I paid about $95 for it [​IMG]

    I love them!And its not that bad of a price, if you try getting quail cages off the internet they usually cost $75 not including the shipping.
