Hello there!

I have a one and a half year old female coturnix quail who lost her bonded friend due to old age, and there is a posting for two free female quails on my local Facebook marketplace. One is a button quail and the other is a California quail.

I am hesitant to mix species. All are friendly.

Any suggestions or comments?

Thank you in advance!!
Michelle

Button quail wouldn't do great with bigger breeds of quail, but some quail owners do keep them together.
However, since your female is friendly, I would give it a shot.

@007Sean could probably help you with mixing species of quail. I'd imagine the button and the Cortunix (due to her age) would be fine. Have the two quail you're looking at already been housed together? I know I kept Bobwhites and Cotunix together previously.
