Thank Derek

The sheds 10' x 6' and I've made the big cages 8' x 3' forgetting that you dont actually get the full 6' inside the shed.

Well I've made the lids, they don't fit very well, but I'm pretty sure they'll keep the quail in Neutral .

While I was out in the shed I measured the space left - unfortunately there's not enough room to put narrow cages under the window (need all 3' to get my bum in for cleaning out Smile ) So I've experimented with removable dividers, the only problem is the shared cage front -



















(nestbox design pinched from my chinchilla's dust bath)

Still not quite finished, I've ran out of wood for the bottom cage fronts, but I've started to put some of the quail into the shed.

Hi Harrie,

There about 8" square - just copied from an old chinchilla dust bath, but I'm going to make them longer next time - silly quailies all want to use the same box Smile

Lined out the shed and now to partition into hutches. We've lined the long side so will have 7'ish x 2' hutches and I'm gonna have 2 doors with a removable divider across the middle of each hutch so I can split these into 3.5 x 2 if and when necessary for breeding, splitting groups etc. I thought that was a neat idea and so did OH. So this means I can have 4 really big hutches or 8 smaller ones.

Can't wait - glad there arent many eggs around at the mo.
