    it would, but i've heard alot of people talking about how quails shouldn't be kept on the ground due to them getting worms, or snakes.

    if you're looking at coturnix, i REALLY wouldn't keep them on the ground b/c of the amount they crap...which is a lot, other then that, anything can basically work, even a dog cage with some hardware cloth put around it

    Thats Pretty Sweet, Looks Like The Guy Put Alot Of Work And Money Into It.

    2 Biggest Problems...
    #1 Predation. If The Bottom Were Enclosed With 1/2 Hardware Cloth This Could Be Controled
    #2 Diesease/ Parasites Which As Previously Mentioned Is A Bigger Issue With Quail
