First, can I keep buttons with my Coturnix?? Buttons are sooooo cute but I wouldn't want them to get beat up or anything.

Second, (sorry this is totally random) I am a landscape architecture student and must have a landscape that has a large llama pen and duck pond as part of a design. I was thinking of lumping the animals together, with the pond inside the llama pen. Is that stupid?? Would the ducks get trampled?? I need some information so that I can defend my design!! Feedback is much appreciated!
Duck Vs Llama--- Idk? I Wouldnt See Any Problems With That 1, But Coturnix Vs Button= Bad Mojo Here!!! Those Coturnix Are Gonna Mess Them Buttons Up Like An Outbreak Of Polio!
I agree with Jeff. I do have to say that my first buttons lived happily with my old Japanese quail for over a year I think it was a lucky flunk. I would not ever do it again.

NO buttons and coturnix together,it will be like some type of civil war in there,and yes im pretty sure you can keep llamas with ducks,they will probibly pretect em if a dog or coyote comes.
would my coturnix be ok??? their hutch is undercover and protected against the side of my home. and they have a nice roomy nest box where they can all huddle if its super cold!
