    Well, you aren't supposed to put quail and chickens together due to risk of disease. That being said, if you want to risk that you could certainly try it, though it probably wouldn't work. I have a pair of Serama in a pen with my Birmingham Roller pigeons. The pigeons are the same size as the Serama but the Serama are bullies...pulling feathers and just being all-around terrors. I would think the Serama would beat up the quail.

    To bad you don't have chicks on both ends. Then you could raise them together.

    Quote:I have raised button quail and serama chicks together. They did okay until the buttons started coming into their hormones, then they started being bullies to the Seramas [​IMG]
