We used to raise rabbits for meat and have several rabbit cages left. I was wondering about repurposing them to raise a few cortunix quail for meat and eggs. The cages are mounted in a kennel-type structure. I'm wondering what type of hardware cloth I should affix to the floor and walls to keep the quail safe and comfortable in the cages, if this is a feasable idea. (The rabbit cages have "baby-saver wire" if that matters.) Also, we are in the country and there ARE rats and mice around if that is a consideration. (And no, I won't use poison.) What kind of temperatures would rule-out keeping quail outdoors in cages? Summer temps get above 100°, sometimes above 110° F. The chickens pant, but it hasn't been a problem with them...Can quail deal with that kind of heat? (Nights always cool down to the 50s.) Thanks for any advice.
