    Hey friends! I currently have 5 happy egg-laying coturnix quail. I have them in a pretty spacious cage. We were wanting to add around 10-15 more coturnix females. should we split them up, or is it safe to add them to the current cage we have the other ladies in?

    thanks in advance! ;)

    if you have the space for them should be ok ,i introduce mine by putting new birds in a cage next to main cage for a week or so(so they can see each other) that way they know each other when you release them.
