    Hi, I know some people on here keep their quail in those plastic bins.
    I was thinking about making one for mine. Was wondering what yours are like.
    Pics appreciated, Thanks

    I used one as a brooder and would not do it again the chicks were very flighty as they couldn't see out well so every time I approached the "cage" they would jump and fly all around. I used it for Button Quail.
    I have seen on here some folks use the giant ones for cortnex and other quail with a wire over the top but can not comment as i do not have them.
    Good luck

    I use the rubbermaid containers inside as brooders until they are old enough to go outside 3 weeks old in summer 5-6 weeks old in winter. i have the flexible black plastic wire/netting over the tops of them to keep them from getting out
