    Hi guys,

    I have my cotunix quail in a large cage now, but I want to know what to do when winter comes it gets as cold as the 20's here should I cover their large cage with a tarp or should I bring them in the house?(I would prefer not to) Are they capable of cold weather like that?

    I put tarp over my pen. You can add a section cover with wood like this one. https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/706648/my-backyard-coturnix-coop-and-urban-farm
