    Is there any examples of quail pens not made of wood? Or something simple without building?

    If you use the search bar you will find many thousands of cage pictures all over BYC. There is actually a whole section of the forum dedicated to cages coops and runs. Learning to navigate the forum will help you answer your questions much more efficiently.

    You do realize those two breeds of quail have almost nothing in common with the way you keep them right? Coturnix are covey birds and are kept with 1 male to 3-7 females for best fertility. bobwhites breed in pairs and can be bred in trios if you have a little experience.

    I apologize for having to ask but for every person that comes in with experience there are ten without.

    PVC pipe is cheap, light, easy to cut with no mess and just presses together. Lots of fittings for joints keeps possibilities near endless. Use screws for a more secure fit. Glue for a permanent fitting. It also doesn't rot and washes really easy.
