    I wouldn't keep bobs with the Valley. Valley chicks can be much tricker to raise up than the bobs. Bobs start of lead of the pack. I think bobs would be to agressive for valley cages.

    I would try to keep all quail species seperate. But if you do put them together, watch for aggression, because both bobs and valleys can be very mean.
