    So im gonna hatch quail and my question is can it stay with a chicken. The chicken is a small medium hen and its about 13 weeks so will the quail be alright

    I wouldn't do it

    Baby quails are very small and their feet are very fragil.

    the hen can easily stomp them​

    Did you give up on the idea you had to hatch chickens in your locker at school?
    Some quail are monogamous and mate for life and must be housed 1 male to 1 female only. Other quail must have a covey to be happy. Quail do not perch, they are ground dwellers and have much different needs than chickens. They probably look more like food to the chickens than anything else. Do your research please.[​IMG]

    Put that quail in with chickens and you won't be able to catch any of them before the quail is disemboweled. Have you ever given chickens just one piece of a super yummy treat? Try giving your chickens just 1 grape and then try to catch the chicken before the grape is eaten. I promise you will not be able to catch them. And if you think chickens are fast, quail are fast enough to break the sound barrier.
