Hi all, I have a bit of an issue that I need advice on. A week ago I hatched 23 coturnix and they are my first go at quail. The problem is that I am in a small island and getting welded wire here is taking far longer than anticipated. (Par for the course here) Now what I do have is the first pen I made for my chickens (before I suffered chicken math and built the mother of all chicken runs ) It is not where I would want them indefinitely but I'm heading to Vancouver for Christmas and want them settled before I leave. The old chicken run is dirt ground and some trees. As in just the ground. Not dirt on contrete or any other substance, the ceiling is netting so perfect for quail If the chooks have been out of it for a while would it be safe to house the quail in there? I know that there's issue with bacteria transferring from chickens to quail but will that threat still be there after a bit of time has passed? It will either be that of having to build an inappropriatly small pen with the materials that I do have on hand. Any input would be super. Thanks.
