    This is my first time raising quail. I have 30 bobwhite quail in a pen, 5ft by 2 1/2 ft.

    they are about 20 weeks old and will be laying eggs soon. I need ideas for breeding pens I heard the ratio was 1 male to 4 hens in a breeding pen. Would like to know how big a breeding pen should be for 5 quail. Looking to make only 2 pens, maybe 3 if it turns out good. Any affordable ideas out there, would like to make my own.
