    Hi i have some chickens (21) and i got a kennel from my sister and i am building 4 pens inside the 10X10X6 foot kennel. I am doing this so i can get my red bourbon turkey chicks out of the house and so i can order some cornish cross chicks. I was wondering if it would be a bad idea to use one of the compartments for quail?

    Sorry bud its bad to keep them next to each other. Keep them about 100 ft away from each other

    If there are chickens in the pen then no.

    Its Not Real Good For Your Turkeys Either.... Blackhead Is Quite Commonly Carried In Chickens And Can Be Quite Lethal In Turkeys
