    Have introduced new quail (following batch) to older batch and the older ones chase the newer ones.

    What can I do?

    Marty1876 Hi Everyone!

    seperate. Its very difficult to mix quial from unknown groups to each other. He will chase him and pick off his feathers, especailly about the head. You might try reintroduction after dark. I've rarely had good luck remixing groups.
