    I can't remember if I asked this yet and if so, where I put it, so I'll try again.

    For shelters in the quail pens, I was wondering if covered kitty litterboxes or even upside down plastic bins with doors cut in them would be sufficient. If they are, how many square inches/feet per person are needed? Would this be in addition to or included in the 1 sq foot per bird that I've been reading as a recommendation?

    I'm using old rural mailboxes for shelter for mine.
