    It's illegal to have grass that is green this time of year! We are FREEZING up here! [​IMG] Nice birds and buns though! They look fat and happy, the way they ought to be!

    The Quail in the cages, are they on 1 x 1/2 or 1/2 x 1/2 wire, I have some extra Rabbit cages like those and was wondering how they would do on the 1 x 1/2 I use for the Bunnies..........[​IMG]

    So jealous! Are you raising them all for meat? Rabbits for fur and quail for eggs? Just for fun?

    just a note of warning to those with their birds in cages of 1" X 1/2" wire.....ALL KINDS of critters can get at quail with that kind of spacing...coons and possums and rats will pull them/parts of them throughthat spacing AND snakes will just slither right in and help themselves to a free meal ...i'd put a 1/2 X1/2 hardware cloth over that 1 X 1/2 asap!
    Believe me as i speak from experience...it's terrible to go out first thing in the morning to feed and find bodies with no heads! [​IMG]
