    I would think the hens would see them as intruders....being the bob whites are small....you might be able to try it, and wathc them...but would have to watch them very closely. Maybe trying to introduce them in the evening, when everyone is asleep..but then you would have to be there when they are wakeing up...to maybe protect the bob whites. Hmmm, I dont think I would try it....just my thoughts!
