    Does anyone have quail and chickens in together. I want to try and hatch some quail from eggs and would like to keep them in the same pen as the chickens. Is this possible or would I be better off building something completly different for the quail?
    If anyone wants to give any advise to raising quail I am all ears. I just started with chickens 10wks ago so I am still very green. Thanks, John

    I sure someone around here has tried it.

    What kind of quail are you raising?

    There are a couple of people that raise quail here... I'm still new to it, but personally I wouldn't keep them in the same pen. I don't know if they are compatible as far as diseases go, and the quail are SO small compared to the chickens, and I think it would be difficult to find the eggs. There are a lot of websites dedicated to raising quail... I just did a search on "raising quail" and pulled up a lot of information. [​IMG]
