Okay, it's me bothering you all again. I understand coccidiosis is very deadly to quail. Cocci happens to be in the soil here at my house, and I have to put my chickens on medicated feed when they are chicks. I've had no problems once they reach adulthood. I do have a building I could put my pens in. It is 32 feet long by 14 feet wide. In the front half I have a couple of chicken pens, but in the back section nothing has ever been in there. Do you think they would be safe in the back part of the building sharing it with the chickens if they have no contact with each other? I do have it partitioned in the middle with a door I can close. Even in the building I would build the cages up off the floor. Now, I'd also like to know, just for learning purposes, if I got some quail and put a pen up off the ground outside will they be safe? I do let my chickens free range so I'd have to make sure they couldn't get up on the cage and poop on it. Perhaps a very slanted roof. But what is your opinion on how safe they would be in that scenario? Also, perchance the quail do come down with coccidiosis, can you use Sulmet to treat them like you do chickens?
