New to all of this, but did have an aviary when I was a kid MANY years ago. Back then, we had a coop 4' x 8' with an attached run 8' x 36' x 7' tall. We had chickens, chucker, ringneck, and pigeons all in the same run, and quail in a seperate cage. I now have a 4' x 8' coop with an attached 12' x 24' x 7' tall run. the coop is about 14" off of the ground. right now it only has 6 chicken pullets that are 16 weeks old. I would like to get some Jumbo/Golden Courtnix, and maybe some Georgia Giants. my question is, If I was to mount a board so that the chickens could not get under the coop,... could I have the Quail running around inside the large run, as long as they could get away from the chickens if they wanted to? or is it absolutely required, ( for the health/saftey of the birds), to be seperated ? I really would like to have a couple dozen Quail running around the big pen, as opposed to just being in a smaller cage. Thanks for any thoughts on this.
