    Can I put my day olds in with my Two week olds? They are all Coturnix quail. Theres alot of space in the brooder for them all, I thought I would ask....

    i know space can be an issue when doing multiple hatches, but they should really be kept separate, you never know what the two week olds will do, and its just not worth taking the risk

    they would demolish those two day olds.

    Thanks, well, I have the space for them, its more like the extra heat lamp I need now. But again, Thanks :D
