    We recently got some Red pullets from TSC and we were wondering what other birds besides our ducklings. Our chicks are Rhode island reds and i heard they were a GREAT breed but i was wondering would they get along with quails? Or if we should try and get some different types of chickens instead Thanks

    Get a different type of chicken. Not only is the size difference too great, but chickens can pass a number of diseases to quail.
    With all the wonderful breeds of chicken out there, you should have no problem finding more to add to the flock!
    For more info on the dangers of mixing quail and chickens, just keep browsing this quail section.
    Its a popular topic!!
