In designing my cages, I am using 1/2 hardware cloth. I want quail for eggs to eat, pickle, and sell. I want quail for my family to eat. I was thinking of starting with Cage # 1 as a 36" long, 24" deep with 2 or 3 compartments (12 or 18" wide x 24" deep) as my first breeder cage. Cage # 2 as 36" long, 24 " deep as a grow out cage for freezer camp birds. Cage # 3 also 36" x 24" for layers I was thinking of starting with 50-60 hatching eggs (Brinsea Octo 20), in hopes to get 2 or 3 breeder sets, 1M to 3F?, about 10 to 15 layers and the rest will get to go to Camp! Then every 3-4 months breed more for freezer camp and replace the layers, who will then go to Camp. How often should I consider replacing breeders?
