I'm hatching a lot of different batches of quail and I need to combine different ages together so I need to know how to do this properly. I alreay experimented with 4 week olds and adults, that was a bad deal. So now I have 1 2 week old that I need to put somewhere, I know I can't house her with the adults, can I house her with the 5 week olds?

YOU'D BE BETTER HOUSING HER WITH THE NEWLY HATCHED KIDS--- WITH THE 5 WK OLDS SHE WILL GET PICKED ON AND BULLIED, BUT WITH NEW HATCHES SHE CAN BE THE BROODER NANNY AND NOT BE PICKED ON...

ended up housing her with the 4 day old chickens. seemed to work out good. one of the chicks chased her around the caged wanting to snuggle for 10 min. everytime the quail would stop running the chick would burry it's head under her. niether picked on each other.
