I second the tubs. They are great. I cut a hole in the front of one with a dremel tool, then I cut a hole in the top of the lid and use window screen mesh to cushion any boinks. I make the hole in the front to allow easier viewing, since the plastic is often rather opaque. I framed the holes with wood, and used some small hardware cloth to allow good ventilation. Best of all, I drilled a couple holes in the side and attached a gravity waterer that fills from the outside. That way water changing is easy and they can't get bedding in it. That method worked well for me when I had multiple pairs of quail. I just put the tubs on a shelf, added some light fixtures, and voila cool button containment units. I can find a link to those waterers if you want, in my opinion they're the best invention since the quail itself. http://www.westcoastpetsupply.com/1/bird-feeders-and-waterers/
they are so cool, you simply lift the plastic water holding part out of the base, rinse, fill, and set it back in the base. It does not leak, spill, or make a mess. They really work well. I love em.
By the way, Susan, the quail pair you sent me is doing quite well, the female is already laying eggs. For some reason my little dog is completely fascinated by them. He sits and watches them for hours. Forget finches, he ONLY cares to watch the quail...even if the finches are being more exciting. Go figure...
