Re: Quail chicks

Hi, I’ve been wondering how you’re getting on, LB. Sorry to hear about the injured bird - do you know how it happened? If it’s a female, could it be a mating injury?
I would separate her from the others so she doesn’t get harassed, and to try to keep her less active to rest the injured wing. I used a second-hand hamster cage as a hospital cage, small enough to go inside the main cage so the injured bird could keep in contact with the rest of the flock and wasn’t bullied when I returned her on her recovery. Not much else you can do with such a small bird, unless you know of a specialist avian vet, though this might be expensive.
They do seem to have good powers of recovery if rested, so see how she goes over the weekend.

Everything is going good she flow into the side of the cage she's chirpy enough just wondered if she has sprained it. I will keep a close eye on her my male is in a cage of his own I don't put him in with the females. Thanks

Glad to hear it’s not too bad. I’d be interested to hear how she gets on in a few days’ time.
