My daughter, husband, and I recently tried hatching coturnix quail, and a problem with humidity led to very few of them hatching, and the ones that did were very weak and died shortly after. Needless to say, we were devastated, especially since this was supposed to be a beautiful adventure to take my dd's mind off of our family dog, her best friend, dying. Anyways, I immediately went out and bought 6 1-month old bobwhites to fill the void, and I now have someone with newly hatched coturnix who wants to give me some. My question is, once they are large enough, can I introduce the coturnix into the coop with the bobwhites? How old do they need to be? What is the best method? My dd has been sitting in the coop with the bobwhites every day and they are not the friendliest of birds. I hear that coturnix are more social with people, and therefore I would really like to make this work! Any help is very much appreciated!
