    Just recently finished my latest quail breeding pen for jumbo coturnix quail.
    ideal for 12-15 birds.

    Ive run outta paint, so nearly finished just needs a touch up.

    I have to nice because they look like the first few I built. Now I am putting a slope on the wire so the eggs will roll to the front and out. Took some quail eggs out just a few minute ago and they work really well.

    Yeah, slopes are better, as you say the eggs rolls down to the front.. and you dont have to muck about opening doors etc, Im gonna build another cage simler to this one and have a slope. [​IMG]

    It Looks great!
    I need to start thinking bout building some pens too.

    Could you put a shim under the back legs to give it some slope?

    Thanks,
    ha awesome. Not many people over here keep quail on wire apart from me and few other breeders I know.
    I guess I could do that to get more of a slope, but am not going bother with this pen, I'll just use this one for growers or birds for the pot. lol
