GQF has worked closely over the years with science departments at leading universities to produce the best quail breeding pens. Our latest improvement is the use of rubber coated wire. This wire is easier on the birds’ feet, allows the pens to withstand repeated cleaning with cage washers, power washers, or just a garden hose, and increases durability. Each section measures 10” x 24” and is adequate for up to 2 pair of Bobwhite or one cock and three hens. These pens have a large feed trough with a water trough on the back for easy filling and may be equipped with an automatic watering system. Correct slope of the floor permits eggs to roll out under feed trough for production of cleaner eggs with less damage and easier gathering. Intended for use with Bobwhite and Cortunix size birds. Galvanized steel section walls can be removed for colony breeding. Drop Pan, item 0317, and stand, item 0316, sold separately.

Had to bend wire for water and feed to allow my bobwhites to get their head through.

- OK but needs add ons Review by Quail layer cage
Price Value Quality
The cage itself is built fine, easily bent though. My first one was shipped from the manufacturer and was damaged by UPS (cage was bent beyond repair and BOTH feed troughs destroyed) but Rural King customer service quickly hooked me up with a replacement.
The feed and water troughs are the thinnest plastic I have ever seen. You WILL have to replace these. They shouldn't even include them as they are a waste.
Cage floor is 20x30 inches, overall size of cage is 24x30. Not sure why 4 inches is needed for egg collection? Gap that eggs roll through is about 1 inch too big, GQF instructions say to lay a 1x2 board to block it until the quail "forget about trying to escape".
I like this cage for breeders, it will hold 3 or 4 birds per section, or you can remove dividers and use it as a colony cage. The rubber coated wire is worth the extra cost, very nice.
