I'm planning to make an indoor quail cage for button quails from scratch and keep it in the house. I'm most likely making it out of wood and hardware cloth, but I'm having a hard time finding resources on making an indoor quail cages... is there anything I should keep in mind? THINGS I KNOW FOR SURE: I know for button quail it can't be more than 12" (1 foot) tall. The spacing for the wire can't be more than 1/2 inch wide. It can't be made out of cedar, but it can be made out of pine. The cage has to be off the ground -- I have a dog who sheds massive dust bunnies that need to be avoided! THINGS I'M NOT SURE ABOUT: Even if the cage is only 12"-14" tall, do they still need padding at the top to avoid "boinking"? If their cage has multiple levels, is it possible that they'll hit their head on the upper level? Can button quails push unlocked doors open? How strong are button quail at knocking things over? I've seen people line the bottom of homemade rabbit cages with linoleum or vinyl tiles, can I do this with quail too? (and use bedding of course) Is water based paint safer than milk based paint for animals? Quails in particular? Do button quails like bird toys? Please help, and thanks so much in advance!!
