    Hi all.
    i am about to start building new quails pens.
    each pen will be 2x4 made into two 2x2's.
    my question is.
    should i make it so the eggs roll out to the front.
    or just have it so i open the door to collect eggs.

    it is a lot easyer and cheaper to just make it so i open the door to collect eggs.

    any help would be great.

    cheers youri.

    Quote:I build the 2x4 divided into two 2x2 pens as you describe. A sloped floor where the eggs just roll out for collection would be nice, but I do flat wire floors, and open the door to collect eggs. I have to do that to feed my quail and give them sand so it's not a problem. That is most cost effective for me. [​IMG]

    When I have more than 50-100 quail, I will reevaluate the sloped floor thing.

    On a side note to Overeasyplz: Any pips yet?
