    Hello, I have a lone bobwhite chick that is currently being housed with 3 button quail who are all about the same age, 12 -14 weeks now. I can't put the lone bobwhite in with the adults. I was planning to keep him in with the button quail but am not sure if there will be problems when they are fully mature. Any suggestions?

    At some point you will most likely have a problem. Even then I don't put birds that are big enough to step on other birds and kill them in the same cage. Not to mention buttons are very aggressive and will most likely attack the bob for interloping in their territory.
