    I know of people who mix pigeons with chickens. I'd say if the area is large enough for the pigeons to roost and not splatter the other birds with fecal matter it might be possible...but considering the possible mess on the birds I personally probably wouldn't mix perch birds with ground dwelling birds but that's just me.

    Yea,.. for the same reasons stated,..
    I would not want my quail walking around in poo and getting pooed on by the pigeons.
