I live in new england....so it gets cold!I plan on making 2 4by3 ft pens,with a 4by3ft attached runs,its going to be off the ground about 5 ft.The run is going to have wire floor but im not to sure about the other part.The other part is going to be the actaul house.Should I just have a wood floor or a wire floor?Im thinking the wire floor is going to be cold in winter but can coturnix handle that?

Its A Compromise Situation--- Either Use Wire And It Wont Keep Them As Warm, Or Use Wood And Have To Clean It And Keep Bedding In There For Them--- Pick 1

If it were me i would use wire and then in the winter i would add some plywood or some cardboard to it so in the summer ya can take it out and its easy to take out and clean

THERE'S A GOOD IDEA

yup, yup! maybe find a way to put plywood under the wire close enough to block the wind from the bottom, but so that you can slide it out and dump it easily....quail poop A LOT!!! then, as already mentioned, just leave it out in the summer.
