Nope. Chickens are worse than quail. They will rip everything out. I put some fake plant leaves in there for the moment for the quail. Upturned pots on their sides with sugarcane mulch in it and they love it. Tree stumps. They pretty much stay on the ground. They are so cute. Much easier than chickens. I can understand why people say they suit suburbia more so than chickens. Much quieter.Did you have anything planted when the chickens were in there?
You can always put up a “wanted” post in Gumtree for quail/quail eggs (locally)? It’s free? Not everyone advertises. You could get lucky.
