    [​IMG] I have a outdoor enclosure, feed and Oyster shells. I have 4 female Japanese quail arriving tomorrow. What else do I need aside from bricks & Conifer branches?

    I am a relatively new owner aswell. Looking at your pen I do think they will need the run covered to give them protection from wind and rain. Also I think you need mesh base to stop rats and fox digging in. Mine are indoors but I put them outside if the weather is nice. I think the trouble I would have with that pen is cleaning inside or interacting with your pets without them escaping. Enjoy your quail, I think mine are fascinating.
