    Does anyone have quail coop photos to share?
    I'm in the process of building mine now and I'm not real sure how to do the interior of their hutch. Do they like limbs or posts for roosting?
    I love some of the creative chicken coops that I've seen on this forum.

    Here is part of mine.. the main enclosure is about 5 ft. long by 3 ft. and about 4 ft. tall.. the coop sits on top and they have a ladder to go up to it and they can also get coverage from the rain by going underneath it. I can try to get a full pic for you if you want to see it. I dont have branches or anything in there because I have heard that they dont usually use them. I had 20 quail in there and now have 10 in there. plenty of room to get away from eachother ;)

    This is mine in progress. We sectioned off a portion of my orchid room for this project. They'll have a large ground area. I'd like to make it as natural as possible but knowing me, it'll have some artsy features as well. Still a lot to do but we're getting there. My eggs should be hatching in a week!
