    I put a little sand and wood chips and they are happy as could be. I'm amazed how many get inside and snuggle

    I actually feed my quail out of similar containers. It keeps the waste down, because they have trouble kicking it over the high sides. We'll usually have one for food and one with sand. As they grow and begin laying, you'll actually find eggs in the containers!
