    LOVE those pics...I've got one quail and 3 due today! OK, so I'm not quite at your scale, but fun nonetheless. Quick question....are those wood chips or is that just a press-board that they are on? It looks fairly smooth and flat, so I'm suspecting flat board. But if not, I'm wondering how you (and others) like the chips fora breading box. when I use them it seems that my chicks a) tend to EAT it (though it doesnt seem to hurt them) and also often end up scratching barespots in it, and as a result have big smooth areas (the placstic bottom of the brooder) and I worry about spraddle leg (I had one get it once). thanks
