Thank you! I will come back here if I have any eggs. Also, really bad how?? When introducing them they will be separated by some small sized chicken wire/hardware mesh first, then I can take that down when it seems they trust eachother.

I plan on using my old computer and my webcam to set up a livestream to keep a good eye on them.

Give them a favorite treat as a distraction. Also, do they have a mini house? I made my quail a house out of a shoebox with many doors and walls, and they could jump onto the roof. You probably know everything you need to know I'm just sharing my success... I brought home a beautiful new boy and checked with every lady quail, not knowing that one of them was already paired up! Finally one quail did get along with him, and I don't know the gender since it's white. After they established a stable relationship I moved them back with everyone else and separated the pair (the female chose a very protective male!). All was good from there.
