    I have 15 quail 5 feet above chicken run and they throw his poo thru 1/2 by 1/2 inch HC to the ground and my chickens are eating dropped poo. Any help will be appreciate. Thanks

    You need to add a drop tray to the bottom of the quail pen. Just like parrot cages have a pull out tray in the bottom of the cage. Chickens eating quail poop can't be good for them and could risk the health of the chickens.
