    So those of you that make quail pens and have multiple levels what do you use to make your catch pans?

    My pen I am making right now 7 ft in the front 6 ft in the back 6ft long by 33 deep. I am building 3 levels. I am I will have pans for the upper 2 levels and nothing beneath the bottom. Any ideas would be greatly appreaciated.

    I bought some heavy aluminum bun pans off ebay. They are 18 inches by 26. Paid less than 7 dollars per pan including shipping. I also saw some aluminum catch pans at Atwoods that looked like they were 24 x 30 inches. They were in automotive and were for use when shanging oil.

    I use rabbit trays (plastic ABS) but they are quite expensive, so I had some custom made and MAN, those things are HEAVY! But, you can get plastic ones at Lowes and Menards and Home Depot to hold washing machines. They are cheap, and they seem to work well!
