    I just hatched 6 coturnix quail and wanted to know if I could hatch some bobwhites and keep them together in the same pen as adults or as chicks.

    As chicks you would probably ok. As adults you will have a small war on your hands.

    Bobwhites are alot more agressive. I have seen them live together but its not very likely it would work out for you.

    Bobwhites are basically pittbulls with feathers. Coturnix are kind of like cocker spaniels. Cute, stupid, crazy cocker spaniels [​IMG]
