I’m so pleased the chickens are doing well and it certainly sounds like you are enjoying yourself!!
Regarding the quail, it sounds perfect having them outside during the summer and inside during the winter. And it should be no problem sorting out a set up on a budget, no need to spend a fortune! A rabbit hutch is perfect but I would go for one close to the ground, maybe only a few inches off the ground. I don’t think they will go up a ladder much higher as they a ground birds. You can quite often find them of the freebie sites!
Any other questions shout and let me know when your ready for the quail.
