    Hi, i was just wondering if you can have bantams and quail together in a large piece of garden. Would they get along?

    Thanks Jack

    Well, quail shouldn't live in a garden... They won't usually come in at night. The bantams will probably peck them up at first, and may get used to them. Plus they could get a disease called coryza from chickens. Some chickens carry that, and if you add outside stock that really increases you chances. If at all possible separate them...

    To the OP: there are several topics regarding keeping gamebirds with chickens, do a simple search and you should find several. Short answer: No.
