    AFTER LEARNING THAT MY VALLEY AND GAMBELS QUAIL ARE A LITTLE MORE PRONE TO ESCAPE I HAD TO MAKE A NEW CAGE WITH A FEW MODIFICATIONS TO IT.

    MY ORIGINAL WAS JUST AN 8 FOOT RUN WITH A HALF SIZE DOOR
    MY NEW ONE WILL HAVE 4 COMPARTMENTS WITH HALF DOORS

    MY FIRST ONE SAT ON THE GROUND NO NEED FOR POO CONTROL
    MY NEW ON WILL STACK ON TOP SO THERE WILL BE POO TRAYS

    THE MAIN THING IS THE SMALLER CAGES SO I CAN SELECT WHO GOES WHERE AND THE TINY DOORS SO THE LITTLE BUGGERS DONT TRY AND GET OUT, I ALSO PUT THE DOORS LOW SO THAT THEY WILL HAVE A HARDER TIME FLYING OUT.


    FOR ANY ONE WHO HAS FOLLOWED MY CAGE POSTS THE BIG ONE IS STILL ON HOLD DUE TO THE FACT THAT I AM LEARNING THE TEMPERMENTS NOW AND I WILL BE MODIFYING MY ORIGINAL PLANS BECAUSE I HAD PLANED ON FULL SIZE DOORS AND A 4 FOOT WIDE DOOR WITH VALLEYS JUST DOESNT WORK.
