Can you raise bobwhites and coturnix chicks in the same brooder and then separate them later? How do you feather sex bobs? Can i keep them in the same size pen as Coturnix? My coturnix are in old rabbit cages and they seem to be fine in there. They have over 1 square ft per bird. There's a hatchery nearby that i can get both coturnix chicks and bobs chicks from and i was just going to get coturnix. but i love listening to the bobs whistle. That's why i want to get some. Any info on the differences/similarities in care for the coturnix/bobs would be appreciated. I'm finding it easy to care for my coturnix.
