    I have a bunch of different cages I use...I use to have quail breeding cages that I had custom made but sold them after I got out of quail this fall. But will be breeding a small number of bobwhite and maybe coturnix again here.
    Here is my main cage...

    In spring they will go out in to a converted dog kennel with a hoop and netting roof.

    These guys have the best pen set up i have seen for growing out
    http://www.quailranch-ok.com/flight_pen_design.html
    it's a bit large for the hobby producer but you could always scale down

    At one time i had online plans for a breeder pen where the eggs rolled out on a sloped wire mesh floor 4 feet deep. I think i could make something like that that would work well for egg gathering.

    is really quite amazing to me and if i ever get very big i would have to try this water system out.

    Wow these are really nice...keep em coming...my problem is that I have to build something for my button quail, but it gets below freezing here throughout the winter. I have heard that buttons are not cold hardy. I'm thinking of putting a cage on the straw in my chicken coop, it usually stays above freezing in there.
