    I am thinking about putting my quail cages and turkeys in the same pen. Is there a disease that turkeys can pass on to quail or vice versa?

    Not that I know of. Both are highly susceptible to the same diseases that chickens can carry so I think keeping them together wouldn't hurt.

    QUAIL CAN BE VERY GOOD VECTORS FOR HISTOMONIASIS (BLACK HEAD) AND COULD POTENTIALLY BE SOURCE INFECTION FOR YOUR TURKEY FLOCK???
