    Would 1.5 inch netting work for netting for a quail pen? I'll try to get some pictures one of these days. This net was fishing net. Thanks for any answers you have.

    I don't have quail but make sure you think snow load when you install it.

    1.5 inch should be plenty for mature quail. if you have dogs be careful because they tend to stick their heads through as a tantalizing treat. Also it should work for a bottom too but if their in a raised pen I suggest a smaller sized netting.
