    My father had this hutch sitting behind his house. It had rabbits in it years ago, but has been vacant since they died. I asked if I could have it and he brought it on over. [​IMG]

    It needs some new plywood on the sides, the doors need to be fixed and I'm putting tin on the roof. There are 4 separate cages. I figured this would work awesomely for my quail [​IMG] I'm going to see how I can attach it to my barn with some braces underneath, so it's eye level. I'm so happy, I can keep the majority of my button quail hatch!

    Each pen is about 2x4. I figure that'll work great. Depending on what hatches, maybe I can get several types of quail. That'd be cool [​IMG]
