    finches. Does anyone know if it is possible to keep both in one cage? Assuming enough floor space is provided for the quail. Thank you!

    I'm sure it can be done, people do it all the time so the quail eat up the seeds on the bottom.

    Provided there is a lot of space it would work out great. There's a really good webste about this, I think its zebrafinch.com.

    Hello
    I have a large 18 X 10 foot aviary with button quail and diamond dove and Finch along with Canaries they seem to all get along well.

    Yes! I have a pair of zebra finches in with our buttons and Coturnix and they get along great. They even snuggle together in a colony! The zebra finches walk around the bottom of the aviary like they are quails haha. Funny story: One time one of the buttons jumped up onto the finch perch swing and was swinging on it... so cute. I would definitely recommend zebra finches!
