Phantom Quail Kennel™

OUR NEW SHOP IS ALMOST COMPLETE! WE ARE NOW ACCEPTING ORDERS

After using the Phantom Quail Kennel in our training program for the last 8 years, we have decided to make a few changes to improve the unit.

The entire exterior is made of 5/8 inch exterior grade B/C plywood. This plywood holds screws much better than the previous manufactured units. We paint all of the exposed parts with high quality Kelly Moore Paint. Everything is screwed together so it will hold together, even when you move it many times!



Water System

Clean water is a must to keep your quail healthy. Our previous solutions were adequate, but now we use a nipple type waterer in the recall section and two larger ones in the main house. You can simply take off the lid and inspect the water in all of them.

Feeding System

We have also installed very neat, clean, and efficient custom feeders in the recall and main house. These have feeding cups that prevent the birds from digging out and wasting feed as well as contaiminating it.


Call Back Section

The call back section is divided with mesh wire providing visual encouragement to the quail outside of the pen. There are three viewing windows into the callback section adjacent to the callback funnel. These can also be used to see how many birds have called back and to see a varmint before being surprised while opening the callback access door. Without the visual of the other birds, callback is average at best. The door to return called back birds is accessible from outside the unit avoiding human contact with the birds. The second key feature of this section is the varmint release/bird loading door. If you happen to trap a varmint such as a skunk, this door will allow you to release the varmint for extermination rather than soiling the inside of the callback. When stocking birds, the gate can be used as a controlled opening to keep birds from escaping before they have been trained.

Ergonomics 

The ergonomics of the Phantom Quail Kennel™ allows you to feed, water, release birds, return call back birds, and visually inspect your birds, all from the exterior of the unit. This keeps bird/human contact to a minimum and makes this the most efficient design on the
 market today.


Portability

The Phantom Quail Kennel™ is portable enough to be moved on a small trailer with two people yet stable enough to withstand high winds without  anchoring the unit.


Healthy Birds

 40 – 50 birds live a happy, healthy, life in the kennel. This gives you an ample amount to conduct several training sessions daily. Build two and place them an adequate distance from each other and either rotate the houses daily or have one for morning and one for evening training.

Dual Flight Doors 

There are two flight doors on opposite sides of the quail kennel. If your unit is set up in the middle of a small property birds can be flown in opposite directions. This gives you twice the coverage with only one unit. Sunning and calling platform With nearly 16 feet of platform birds have a generous area to call other birds and be in the sun. This is a favorite area in the early morning and late afternoon. These platforms also act as a staging area for birds to be flown for training. 

Ease of Construction

 After building many of these, we have created a system that will ensure success. Using the detailed plans, materials list, and illustrated instructions this project can easily be completed in one weekend.

Remember to check your local and state game laws as recall pens may not be legal in all areas; and may require special posting, permits, licenses, and/or leg bands.
