    I am thinking of putting my quail cages on the walls of my coop.. I would have it so the chickens could not roost on top of them and poo pans under each cage.. This ok??? Thanks in advance

    That's fine, a lot of people do that [​IMG]

    Some of my chickens even roost on top of the cages, and it doesn't bother them. Of course there are boards covering them, so they don't get bombarded with stinky all night! [​IMG]
