I would still separate. Although convenient to have them together, you would need to quarantine the new birds for 30 days and then have them in in their own pen.

Once, a Japanese quail got out onto the barn floor. One of my bobwhite cages is about at ground level, so they could see each other. The bob fluffed up huge, and made his 'Get any closer or I'll kill you' look on his face and started trying to get at him through the wire.

Can't say I would reccomennd it!

(Had a bob get in the Japanese cage and killed two of them. Jus sayin.)

I have my Bobs, valleys, and coturnix in separate pens. Works for me, no one gets killed. Win win situation.
