Why Can't You Put Quail and Chickens Together - Page 25

Unless you have an environment that is "CLOSED" you are not going to prevent your birds from coming in contact with "wild birds" Heck,I've had cardinals get IN the house. I keep an eye out for any birds that appear weak,sick or just plain odd.

To clarify,i do not advocate mixing flocks. I have other quail in raised wire pens.The chukar (2) can't be placed with the coturnix,being there are only two I'm not building additional cages unless they turn out to be male and female

so i have a shed and it houses my quail, i have had some chicks (chickens) in a chick only brooder out there for about a week, should i be super concerned that they've been infected in some way?  I plan to move them now so i can stop worrying...

should i be concerned the quail are sick or the chickens??

I wouldn't be. I think the risk only gets out of hand if they are exposed (quail) to the chickens dirty litter or wet wormy ground

Anybody remember or watch the movies " I am Legend" or "Outbreak"? There were those anomalies that were immune, the carriers and those who died.
