    Can you get a picture of it from the side? I can't tell if it is a quail or a chicken. lol

    Looks like a coturnix quail to me. I have several that look like that.

    Yeah, on second look, I think it's a quail, too.

    NO. First of all the bird either escaped someone else's pen, or was released. He/she needs to be quarantined. You do not want to expose any of your birds to it. Second you should not mix quail and chickens at all, even if the bird never shows illness. Chickens can be carriers for illnesses that can quickly kill quail.
