How many coturnix can I put in a 3'x 8' cage. I have a 100' roll of 1/2 x1 x 3' floor wire and 3 100' rolls of 1x2 for sides and top so I can make them about any size a want. Is it better to breed them as large groups or should I treat them like bob's? I have my bob cages finished. I have 15 pairs of butlers and then I have 30 eggs from JJ. Will have to wait to see how many hatch. I was going to go ahead and buy coturnix eggs but if they grow as fast as I'm told I figure I would just get everything ready before I do buy. Then While they are growing I won't be rushed to build cages for future use. All of my cages will be in the end of my shop. That section has a dirt floor 36x 24' and has a open front. I will probably cover the front with a heavy tarp during the winter. I need to come up with some kind of poop tray so I can stack the cages. I can find material for small ones but it gets hard when you try for large size say 3x8 and up. Any ideas on that?
