    I have never had or raised birds before. I got online and found Backyardchickens.com and thanks to all of the good ideas you all have on here I came up with this cage.
    I intially wanted to raise quails, then I thought i'd like some chukars too. So I built a three level mobile cage. I just finished the top two levels, and still have the bottom level to finish. The bottom level will also have slide-out bins for the feed and supplies so the whole system housed everything needed. There are no hinges or hardware on the doors, they all slide up-down. I made custom galv. drip pans.
    It is getting warm here in Az so I have not installed the lighting system yet. I'm also planning to add corrugated metal for the roof and maybe add some color to it. All the wood is sealed with a matte lacquer. The back plywood of each cage slides out for easy cleaning and access.

    hope you guys like this.
