    It may be a possibility since they would be similar in size at full grown.

    ok I'm no expert but....All our chickens are bantys except for a couple we got for egg layers. We have several quails that we keep in a pen by themselves. We tried letting them in a fenced area with our chickens with their wings clipped and they still managed to fly off. Also maybe our quails are just psycho but I would never subject our poor little banty girls to those things! LOL! I know that sounds harsh but maybe someone else might have a different opinon or more insight. would say if you wanted quails make sure they are in a secure pen. I know they work well in Aviaries...just let them loose and they pick up the seeds and stuff that the other birds drop.
