    So I have 100 quail and 24 RIR chicks hatching this weekend and I have 3 3week old quail chicks that I hatched as a test run for my new incubator to make sure it worked (I set 5 eggs and hatched 3). Could I put the older quail in with the quail just hatched to help them play "Follow the Leader" to teach them to eat and drink? Or would it not even be worth a shot? How about the chickens? These are bobwhite quail btw.

    I forgot to mention that the quail will be in a seperate brooder from the chickens.
