Hi there! My friend got me these two birds for my birthday. He knows I have chickens and he thought I would like them. He has no idea what they are just that they will fly away and they lay eggs (which really narrows it down in the bird world) :) Anyone know what they are? Thanks so much!

I thought maybe they could be baby guinea fowl? If they are quail, how old are they? I just searched for quail on these boards and discovered a war zone when it comes to keeping them with chickens. I have no idea what to do with quail. I'm guessing they won't stay in my yard if I let them out of their coop.

Great! Thanks so much! So now I just need to figure out what I'm going to do with them :)

They are very docile and sweet. I'm going to build them a little run to live in!
