I was given 22 - 10 week old quail and 5- 6 week old mini chickens. I've got them housed for the moment enclosed in the small section of my chicken coop. My DH is outfitting an old rabbit hutch giving them a new enclosed box - 4' long - 3' wide and 2' high and 2 additional open layers with wire as a base. But the hutch opens up to a large run that is probably 15 x 20 x 8' high.. It's sides are chain link with the bottom 24" covered in chicken wire. The top covered in netting. I've looked through all the pics on this site and the majority don't have runs. Do quail not enjoy the freedom of a run or is just that its not necessary for happy quail? I've had them for 2 weeks waiting for the new housing to be finished and not one egg has appeared. I live in South Central PA so it's getting cold and they don't get much light now. I guess I just want to be sure I'm doing what I can to have happy quail - since I've got a gaggle of happy chickens! TIA!
