hi this is the quails new home for the summer (yes i know what summer). they will live in it in the day and i will put them away in the shed at night, just to be on the safe side, as Mr and Mrs foxy likes to come and visit us and my menagerie.

That looks a really good unit, Rita. How big is it? It certainly looks sturdy and safe for them. How do you get into it, does the top hinge up or is the end a door? Do they choose to go into the bedroom end, or how do you get them in there at night!

yes the top opens up and i shoo them into the carrier in the evening and pop them in the shed, they don't use the house to sleep in but they do pop in and out of the house, through the day.
when i climb into the run to collect them there is the usual running around and panic but they do settle quickly and it's easy to catch them.
