    Any problem with quail and rabbits sharing a shed -- each in different cages?

    Thats when I would enclose a a pen and use the poop to fertilize all kinds of goodies for the quail to eat and put them in there when they're rotated out of the laying pens for a break.

    I would not raise my birds on the ground, to big of a hassle here but yes all the Rabbit POO goes in the garden.....[​IMG]

    We're pretty dry here, at least the ground dosn't ever get very swampy in most places. I would agree with the hassle part but here to but it would be find if they arn't being used for egg production or breeding at the time, i.e. grow out and holding pens. Guess management practices have to vary with local conditions.
