    I'm looking at building a flight pen for my Bobwhites. It is going to be in a little clearing in my backyard. How big would it have to be for say 30 birds?

    Anybody got pics of theirs

    Quote:The bigger you can make it, the better!! The minimum that I would go with for that number of quail would be a 24' long, 8' wide, 6' high. Ensure lots of cover is planted as well as logs, rocks, and other natural items to keep them busy and stimulated.

    Again
    , this is what I would do. Others would cram that many in a much smaller setting, but you have to be careful how you house the wild species, never know who may stop in and visit your aviaries. We are taking a beating with the AR nuts, so the better we can show these off to the officials, the better it will be for all of us.
