As mentioned in another thread, I've got a male coturnix in a 10 x 10 run (aviary), and am planning to add several females this weekend. It's in a highly shaded area, with some honeysuckle, sprigs of grass, and Virginia creeper. There are two doghouses (one plastic, one wood), areas of straw and areas of compost, a large hay bale that is propped up so that there is shelter under it, and another shelter composed of sticks (not really shelter from rain, but just a visual barrier). I enjoy making the area as comfortable and enriched as possible for the boy (and his soon-to-be girls), and am trying to find articles and other information about their natural habitat in order to mimic it as much as possible. Does anyone have links to great articles on this topic? Thanks!
