- 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.
