    Quick question. I'm building a 4x4x3 pen and having trouble deciding where to put it. My house is a rental and I have 2 large yards also a very good carport. I've been considering putting the quail pen in the carport towards the back near the fence. It is both cool under there and very protected from the elements. The truck even completely under it is still a good 3 ft in all directions from it and it is rarely under it. There's also both a water faucet and electrical outlet near it. It would basically be tucked into a corner next to the house. Not visible even without the truck from the street with no chance of being run into...there are 2 posts 5ft apart plus my trash, recycle, and yard waste bins before you could get to it. Would this be suitable? I could use the backyard but it wouldn't be nearly as protected from the elements this way.

    I'd build it there, and with power and water it makes it a no-brainer.
