    Hey guys. Fairly new here, but wanted to share with you the Quail Aviary I just completed yesterday. It was quite the project, as I did it all by myself, but am happy with the results and the Quail absolutely love their new home! As I'm sure you can see, I built the Aviary on a slope. It is 10x16 with a closet inside where I can store extra hay, feed, tools, etc. The roof is made of clear Suntuf 8' panels you can buy at Home Depot. Because the enclosure is way out back and I dont want to constantly drag a hose out there (and because we want to be able to take vacations) I opted for a 60 gallon rain barrel with poultry cups drilled into the bottom as their waterer. I used ACV (1 TBS per gallon) so the water doesn't become algae infested. Hope you enjoy the pictures.

    That is completely awesome! I love it! I would have to build one twice as big though. I like the shelters. I going steal your shelter plans. How tall did you make the access space?
