    Here is the quail breeder pens i came up with. all scrap excepting the wire (my gosh that is expensive stuff!).


    i saw some large bottle waterers. will those work? seems a lot like the nipple waterers.

    i'm also thinking to lift the food to neck level. could i stick a square 2"x4" under the food bowls (made for quail. closed top with holes for their heads to stick in).

    i get two "Yes's," then i'm ready to rock-n-roll.

  2. I see bottle waterers in alot of quail pens in the forum, so I'm figuring you are good to go on that one. I've seen alot use the rabbit/guinea pig waterers.

    I use the rodent water bottle with balls. I do not recommend the bottles that have spring loaded balls on the end cause the birds aren't always strogn enough to move those but the ones with two balls work great!
