I know you shouldn't house Coturnix quail near chickens. But I have looked through the many pages and tried searching about housing them near ducks/geese. They are not going to be in the same pen as the ducks and geese, just their hutch will be leaning against the side of the duck/goose coop. Or is this also a no no? I just want the health of all my critters. I have the chickens and ducks/geese separated for health reasons and simply that the ducks/geese just make too much of a wet mess! I also have some ducklings brooding in my brooder room, so the coturnix chicks will be brooded near, but not in the same brooder and the ducklings. I have the brooders set up across the room from each other, but it is a very small room. If they shouldn't be housed near each other, should I place the quail hutch near my house then? I am also looking for a little safety, I have had a problem with hawks, eagles, and owls lately. I figured if they were near the duck/goose coop, kind of under the overhang, they would less likely be seen. Any help would be appreciated, and thanks!
