Mine dont fight but they are all from the same hatch. I have 7 girls and 2 boys (I think!) They have a lot of room to get away from each other too. I have heard of them being not so nice to each other...

I keep a few males per pen, if raised together they shouldn't cause too much of a problem. Coturnix don't set their eggs often so you can eat any egg anyways.

1:3 is probably the lowest you should go, unless you want more hens in a cage and more fertile eggs I would go with 1:5
