    Can I keep a couple of quail with my three chickens?
    I would make a separate bedding place but they would all share the same run.

    Not a good idea, if you need more info, do a search this question is asked VERY often.

    There is a "google custom search" tab section on the upper right of the screen. If you type the subject you are questioning about, you may find the answer [​IMG]

    Keeping quail with chicken is a much debatable subject here. It is not recommended, however.
