    We are raising silkie chicks and frizzles and quails side by side. Now our silkie chicks sound like our quails and not like our older chickens that are in the coop. Its actually funny but, Im worried that it will be harder to integrate new chicks with older chickens if they sound like chickens. Has anyone else noticed their babies doing this or am I the only one. I mean they sound exactly the same. We have raised other chicks, just not next to quail and this has never
    happened before

    It will be fine. I have baby chicken and quail together and no one has been confused yet. You don't want them together after they are babies however.
