    Hello there BYC!! My name is Tom! I am looking to start up a little coop with multiple birds. i have some chickens now, id like to add some game hens, chukar, turkey, and quail to the mix. i have a design in mid to keep them all away from one another. are there any of these i've listed that could be kept together? or is it best to keep them all separate? What are the angles i need to use to build my quail cages? i want to use wire screen to form the units. another question, how many birds will i be able to fit together into a typical 10 x 10 enclosure split into half open and half enclosed cage?

    Greetings from Kansas, Tom, and [​IMG]! Great to have you with us! I am not experienced with inter-mingling the breeds you mentioned so I sure can't advise. I wish you well in your venture!
