    Would it be okay to move 2 hens from a large rabbit cage to a 4 by 1 / 3 by 2 vivarium? One of them recently broke their wing and we suspect it was from catching it on the bars of the cage they are in now. They both get outside regularly to fly/move around. Viv is ventilated in the back and has two glass sliding doors in the front. I would put a tray down on the inside to help with cleaning but all hides, sand ect would fit in fine. Is this okay to do or not? Thanks!

    [​IMG] glad you have joined us, but so sorry about the injury and hope she is recovering.

    I know nothing about quail, and would suggest you post the question on the Quails forum.

    I agree that is a matter for the quail folks. Welcome to Backyard yard chickens.

    Hi and welcome to BYC - glad that you have joined us. Like Sunflour and DD, I know diddly squat about quails, but I'm sure you'll get your answers from the quail forum.

    All the best
