    Yep...you got you some mini chickens. (Bantams)
    Enjoy them and welcome. If you spend much time here, may as well start building a bigger coop. I can tell you need more.

    It's a nice looking pen for them. I just meant chickens are addictive and you'll be wanting more before long...It doesn't help reading about and seeing all the members flocks.

    I have a big backyard so if my flock gets big I'll build more. Just wondering is it safe to put them with quails?

    Chickens can be seriously territorial. Might not be a good idea to have them housed with quail. Plus, quail typically need a feed with a lot more protein than is healthy for a chicken to consume long term.
