I'm getting dog crates for my coturnix. I know they'll need some modifications to make functional, but am trying to do it as inexpensively as possible. Today I'm hitting the recycling center because I was told they have rolls of hardware cloth. I'll attach that to the sides and probably put a board or something solid over the top to give some protection from weather. Questions: Will the widely spaced wires on the floor need hardware cloth over them? What else will I need to do to make them appropriate for quail? I was a little concerned that they're too tall, do I need to put a false bottom in to make the floor closer to the roof? Or perhaps try to create a floor halfway up and make a two story quail house? Thanks!
