So we have 3 pigeons, 3 quails and 11 chickies (soon to be 13). When the next 2 come (seremas, being shipped by a fellow BYCer ), we want them to run in the garden area. Its already mostly fenced off, so it don't matter much. Well, the quail will also be there, and hopefully the pigeons. For now the pigeons have been in a rabbit hutch (with a failed stick perch), with chickens eating anything they drop, or whatever. I THINK I've had them for about 5 days like this. Heres my Q. Can i house Seremas, Quails and pigeons together? It will have deer netting top, and be cut off with wood, and have a garden, and all the good fenced off fun to run around. So, before I go clipping pigeons wings (we have them currently free ranging in the garden section, 2 of their wings are clipped and the 3rd pigeon doenst have clipped wing so she has to be in a wire cage with grass and a perch while her friends sit on a dirt pile ), can I house them ? And if the chickens would get sick how long before symptons develop of a disease transmitted? They like to scratch in the pigeons old bedding (which is mostly poop ) and any food dropped, so if they got dieases, I'd imagine syptons would be showing.
Thanks in advance :D
