Hi, im new to this site and I want to know what quail eat, the different species etc. The cage I want to build will be 9-10 feet long, 4 feet high and 4 feet wide However what type of wood should i use? Should i create a frame out of 2x4s, then cover the sides with MDF boards while i put some type of tarp on the roof and leave the front covered with mesh and make a door? Or should I make a box out of sheet wood such as MDF and just add mesh to the front, make a door and add tarp for the roof? Where can I get cheap wood from? We hardly have any skips where I live so I need to buy it online or from a shop How thick should the wood be? Will 60mmx20mm be fine all round the cage if I use the frame idea? If i do the sheet board idea will 18mm thickness be fine? What substrate because some say wood shavings others say straw? How many quail can I fit in my cage? How often do quail lay eggs? What food do they need? do i need oyster shell? and What species are there?
