    Afternoon!!! I'm a newbie to raising quail. We currently have 8-6 week old quail in our new outside hutch and 13-3 week old quail in the brooder in the garage. Here's the quail hutch my husband and I built last week. I'm still pretty shocked how well it turned out. We're pretty proud of it. Just thought I'd share [​IMG]

    I don't like the looks of that. You should send it to me so I can evaluate it over the next 20 years and tell you what I think.

    Very well done.

    Looks great. We are looking to build something of a similar style over the next couple of weeks. Did you get instructions from anywhere or did you design it yourself? I've been searching google for inspiration.

    Here's where I got the inspiration for our hutch. Ours is a bit larger and we pretty much tweaked the whole thing. Let me know if you'd like me to post more pics from the original build. http://suburbansustainability.com/tag/quail-hutch/
    We just added a lower level this weekend because I had 4 males that needed to be separated and 13 that needed to move from the garage brooder.
