    I need mega mini coop ideas for my button quails...I want it to be nice looking but not huge by any means. i'm thinking the coop will be 4' L x 4' W x 5'H and the run should be
    5' L x 6' W x 5' or 6' H

    I want tips on what to put in the coop, what to put in the run, and what paint's are safe and of course cool ideas! Okay awaiting a response,

    JD

    Good morning! Have you looked at the coop designs link at the top of this forum? There are lots of great ideas for small, medium, and large coops. [​IMG]

    Is it for your buttons??? You could use a large aquarium for them. I have an outdoor avairy that mine are in, but they come in in the winter and are in a cage with a 1" grid.....the one you aer building would be HUGE for them. They would never even use 1/2 of it probably. I would go more with an aviary design, than a chicken coop design, since you may want to consider the safety door an aviary offers, once a button get out, it is NEVER coming back!!!

    You can alter a dog house......either way, be sure to use the harware cloth for buttons, not chicken wire! Good Luck!

    Well I'm planning to add on to my flock. Different types of quail probably...

  6. I think it would be great if you could have your coop floor raised so it's easier to service the area. I think quail might prove an exciting opportunity for a coop that is SO easy to clean! Why not start a new thread addressed to quail raisers?[​IMG]

    I would definatley address a thread to quail people....but your buttons will have to be house separately since they are the size of finch.
