    what do you think about these?

    quail pens- There are two of these facing each other and draped with bird netting (like small flight pen)

    Here are a few more pics

    Here is the other quail cage


    Here is the big pic of both with netting between


    From time to time they end up in my 13x14 ft duck pen. They get along well with the ducks. I thought about maybe putting them in with the ducks for winter instead of leaving them in the raised pen (because of drafts)?

    it all looks good to me, of course I don't know anything about quail.. just what I have read online..I had never read anything about a flight they need it? I was thinking about getting some just never have yet..

    I also see that you have Ducks..I just received 12 in the mail this morning they are Pekin, what type do you have? is your laying yet? could you tell me alittle about housing and nesting boxes?.. in the past I only had 1 or 2 ducks at a time and they stayed with the chickens so I didn't do anything special for them..this time I want them in their own pen, so I can hatch off some eggs and sell the rest..

    TIA for any info you might send my way

    This is were my ducks live for now ( The water isn't usually that muddy but it had just got done raining for 3 days straight when I took the pic) They love the dog house-- They go in it at night and anytime they are scared.

    Mine are some kind of mixed breed.
