    I got some used mink cages and modified them. They work great! I figured if they can keep mink IN they can keep the OUT too...so far so good! TerriO

    I like that one A LOT, i want to know how to make it, how to reach inside the pens, how to clean it (wire), and what to use for water (what system).

    That was pretty ingenious. It looks like they used rain gutters for the feeder, and used wire that was large enough for the quail to put their heads through. IMO, the feeding trough was placed too high, as it seems like some of the birds are straining to reach far enough down to get some food.

    After watching the video, I scrolled down to read the replies/responses. It appears to be German, and I had to get google to translate it, but most of the responses were negative; they felt the owner of the quail was a monster for keeping such beautiful animals under such conditions for profit.
