    Anyone hatch/raise/house quail together with chickens? I was thinking of putting a couple in the new bantam chicken coop with the Silkies and Serama. Is that a safe things to do?

    No. I am getting quail and have been lurking in the quail forum. They all say NO NO because the quail can easily catch diseases from the chickens.
