The assembly of this product was difficult from the most critical step, the beginning. Cconsequently a lot of patience is required when you end up repeating steps because the first step is so poorly written. After few steps you must logically figure figure it out on your own, then redo your mistakes. Once all this unnecessary protocol occurs, the brooder works like a dream. I had a problem with the watered designed for quail, however I simply added quart- jar waterers with the base sized for quail.
