CPQ Housing

Post by Suz on Wed Jul 18, 2007 1:56 pm

What do you think of this for CPQ housing & brooder for japs that are off heat?

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Double-Budgie-Breeding-Cage-48-x-18-x-12_W0QQitemZ170130177551QQihZ007QQcategoryZ46289QQtcZphotoQQcmdZViewItem

I'm running out of room in my enclosed garden, and don't fancy putting the quail where there's a chance the village kids, dogs and possible predators could get at them until I persuade KP that I really do need the 10' shed that I keep sending him links too Laughing . I've got a large porch/conservatory that I used to use as beastie room, I was thinking of stacking a couple of these in there until KP gives in on the shed idea.

The cage things came today, they look great just wish they were a foot wider then they would be perfect, I've got all 25 young CPQ in one double unit, but will group them off once I'm sure of their sex -





will post more pictures in the Gallery.

I have budgie/finch breeding cages in my loft but never thought of using them before as I thought there wasn't a lot of floor space but I guess they are fine if there isn't many of them per cage. Let me know how they get on in their new accomodation Suz?

I'm thinking about adding a couple of shelves at each end of it to increase floor space. But I'll get a better idea of what space they'll need once they've grown.

I sometimes buy parrot food from a woman who sells parrots, budgies etc. and breeds fancy finches and other wee birds, anyway she keeps her CPQ's in the same type of cages as her finches - her individual cages are about 24"x18" and if I remember right she keeps a few trio's together. I was hoping to get away with 4x trios in a double cage.
