    I made a change to the pen.

    Since I set up the Quail pen, I've been using a light clamped to the outside, so it shines in.

    Well, then I started reading about people using Christmas lights to light their pens.

    I think it works well!

    I stapled the lights to the underside of the Hutch lid with most of the lights on the open side where the Quail spend most of their time.

    Quote:I love your design. Could you provide us with the various dimensions and cuts? I'll run out today and get the sheet of plywood and copy this! I was planning on building a new brooder today anyway, and instead I might just make this (and use it as a brooder when needed, and when not a brooder use it as a coop). Great coop!!
