Wire Spacing

Post by Jen88 on Mon Jul 21, 2008 2:24 am

I've just seen an indoor rabbit cage that I'm think of getting but I was wondering if the quails might get their heads trapped between the bars, they are 1 inch high and alot wider... erm I'm not good at explaing things so heres the cage Laughing

(n.b I'm using different water and food bottles and its staying indoors)

Its just for the two hens I'm getting, does it look ok?

That's perfect for a couple of hens ( I use similar as brooders/temp housing) Smile ... I personally wouldn't change the water bottle they soon learn how to use them just put a small dish of water under the bottle for a few day.

Hiya Jen, i use one of these indoor hutches for my female, and to date havn't had anything go wrong with it, with 1" spacing i wouldnt think it would allow a quail to trap its head, as long as theres no cats around when a quail decides to have a peak out i would say its fine Very Happy

I've got 1" spacing on my outdoor hutches and their heads poke through fine without getting stuck (although the bars are vertical).

I will do that if I think they look like they might get stuck, I've got a load of wire mesh lying around away Very Happy
