    Awesome job and nice video. Just because I only have chickens I was surprised to see them flying around. Guess you don't freerange quail.[​IMG]

    Thank you, and the quail are freaking out because i caught them from my property and at the time they were fairly new, now i moved them into my dads pigion coop and they free range 24/7 :D What type of chickens do you have? take care.

    Hey bro I saw your video awhile back and I told you I was going to build the same kind of coop. I saw the instructions on YouTube. Just letting you know I am almost done with my coop. When I get it done I will post a video and some pics of it. I asked you how it held up to wind. After putting it together I know it will be pretty solid. Anyways it's good seeing ya on here. By the way after I saw your video a few months ago I decided I'm going to start raising quail. I have some eggs in the incubator now.

    I can't believe they free range either...not get ate AND come back every night...pretty clever quail you have. That is certainly atypical behavior and not the norm.
