    Good evening everyone. I was curious if it would be ok to have fresh out of the bator chickens in a brooder very close if not right up against the brooder for month old bobwhite quail? The quail did not start on medicated starter, all seem to be doin great. The chickens will be started on medicated food. It will still be a week or two until the quail will be outdoors so for the time being the chickens will be in a back up brooder. Are there any health concerns for either being near each other I should be aware of?
