    Looks Very Good.... I Would Say You May Wish To Reconsider Wire Size, At Least On The Bottom 2-3 Feet. While That Wire Will Hold Adult Quail Lil Guys Can Get Out And Lotsa Predators Can Reach In. And For Some Unknown Reason Quail Can Really Attract Predators. I Like That Design... Single Story Or 2 Story?

    Two Story You Think 2 Inch By One Inch Is To Big? Its In A Fenced Back Yard To. Maybe I Should Use The Half By Half For The Bottom Story?

    Quote:that looks great but i personally think you would be wise to have 1/2 " X 1/2 " EVERYWHERE. i know from experience that opossum will reach in on 1" X 1" and pull off heads.........i do everything in 1/2" now.

    You should take a trip to California!

    I need quail pens and coops!

    Very nice and I hope it works out great for you. It's nice to see when others offer advice. Keeps you from having to change things lateron.

    Good luck!

    Purdy nice concept!
    I too would put 1/2" x 1/2" wire everywhere you can afford to............even if you have to eat cold-cuts for the next coupla weeks! You'll be glad you did. You gonna have poop trays in between?
