    I have all bantams: a silkie hen, a brahma hen, two old English game hens, and a silver sebright hen. Can I keep button quails with my five small bantams? I an thinking about hatching some button quails

    No, button quail are very small, the chickens would probably kill them. Buttons should be kept indoors anyway, and it's best not to keep game birds (quail) with chickens.
