Help figuring out what's wrong with quail

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

After a day and a half vacation, I came home to see my female blue breasted quail with a strange head injury. The very top of her head seems to be bulging, and it looks like her forehead was split but closed up. I don't notice any aggressive behavior ever since I re-placed my agressive male and his queen. Then again I don't have the time to watch them for hours so I won't jump to any conclusions. Also the top of their hutch has a yoga mat so I don't think she got it from that. Is it possible that she flew sideways and hurt her head? I don't have a spare place to put her to heal, so any questions to help you help me, or any suggestions, would be appreciated. Thank you!

Do you have any pictures of her injury?

Most likely she found a way to hit her head. They're fantastic at it.

Sorry for the late reply! Since this is so late, she is mostly healed up so I can't provide a good pic of her injury. I'll consider it a boink, and if it happens again that might be a problem... Thanks for the replies.
