I keep quail at the bottom of my aviary actually two types bobwhite(hens) and button quail(male and female) and there's a box for the quail to lay but my cockatiels took over for their nest. Funny thing is the bobwhite quail owns a proportion of the eggs in the nest and whenever both tiels are out after being scared off the nest etc the quail goes in and takes over till a tiel returns.

They may hatch them but the feeding and care after hatching would be too different. I have used hens to hatch ducks and peacocks without a problem but they still feed in the same way and are similarly independent after hatching.
