    I have my button quail outside in a small aviary: 31" wide x 8' long x 4' high. I want to put some other birds (non ground birds) in with them. Does anyone have any suggestions for birds that can overwinter outside in zone 7a (North Alabama)?

    Thanks![​IMG]

    I have a small aviary that my button quails are in... and i have zebra finches and society finches and 2 diamond doves in there with them [​IMG]

    the first week everyone will be nervous around each other but after that they all get along very well...i even had some finches started sleeping on the bottom with the button quails..lol... only thing is my aviary is indoors ..now you can also have these birds out side but during the winter months i would bring them in and then take them back out in the spring to be with the button quails [​IMG] i hope this helps...good luck
