I'm thinking about adding some of my coturnix jumbo's to the rabbits sheds since they scurry around & eat dropped food. Of course they will still be getting enough quail feed to keep them healthy, but has anyone ever tried this? Both the chickens & quail eat the rabbit food given the chance, the chickens do try hard to get at it & go mad if they do, I'm guessing because of the vegetative content. After all, they also eat grass, clover & my lettuces if given the chance! We have low hutches for the quail to hide under & they will be being provided with their usual equipment. I'd much rather open the shed to scurrying quail, than mice. By the way our small garden is very closed off to the outside world, so no diseases here. We keep chickens, rabbits & quail all close to each other. Never had any problems because I run a strict rule of home hatched birds only. If its not in an egg, it doesn't get in. We don't have any wild birds either, the chickens scared them all off & we don't attract them. Also we have a 6ft x 5ft Rabbit run that converted to house quail. We added strong wire to the bottom to stop predators digging in. How many quail can I house comfortably in here? Currently we have four.... 2 boys, one girl & one unknown quail who's golden. They are all on the grass in this run & have been for 6 weeks. They have a box shelter which is about 50cm length x 35cm width I specially designed to protect from drafts & damp with a small opening in the corner on the long side so they can get in & out. It is made from wood & has a tarp covering it for addition protection.
