Quail house repairs
The quail house roof was damaged in the recent gales. I did a temporary patch job to cover the hole but that was not going to last long, especially as the gales were continuing. So yesterday we set about doing a permanent repair. First, I had to put all 14 quails into the hutches. They are ground dwelling and don't fly much but they can panic and suddenly fly upwards.
The broken roofing panel was then replaced. We added an extended ridge along the top side of the quail house. This will allow us to extend it later this year.
And the final repair job.
