I've been talking about it and finally got it done yesterday and geez my back and arms are killing me. I converted my "Playhouse" coop which isn't big enough for all my birds in to a quail house. Had to cover everything!! with smaller wire. Here's the "Playhouse" Kind of hard to see but if you look real close you can make out where I took off the front wall and made a large opening. Here it is from the inside. They have access to the whole bottom if they want.I've put in things that they would find in the wild. SOme rocks, large branches, and a bird bath that is like a large puddle. I have dirt down on the bottom right now but I'm thinking of putting down some heavy mulch that I can pick up at the local stables. The area is 3ft by 8ft. The protected "coop"area is 2ft by 3ft, Plus I have some old shutters lying across the top for shade. Here are my feathered friends. I have 2 males and 12 females. There maybe another male or 2 in there but I think there are just the 2. There is a window in the back of the coop but I have it covered with plexiglass. Didn't want any cross breezes chilling them. So all you quail people what do you think? Should I put in a "ladder" for them to get up and down with or will they all fly back up? I know one of my males was up and down today but I'm gone all day and not sure who else may have been.
