I have a quail that appears to be paralyzed in the legs. She can still flap her wings and move hear head without problem though.
I found her this way on Thursday afternoon and she has been segregated from the flock since. She still isn't walking, but I have placed her close enough where she can eat and drink from where she is sitting and she eats and drinks fine. In fact, other then apparently not being able to walk she doesn't seem to be in any discomfort or distress. There was an egg next to her before I segregated her, I believe it was from her because the birds virtually never lay the eggs where she was. The egg appeared normal, but she hasn't layed another one.
I am trying to figure out what might have happened/be wrong with her and how to help or what to do with her. The rest of the flock seems to be OK, but she doesn't seem to have a head bonk (the ceiling is ~12 inches above and is mesh wire above where I found her (though there is an inside area with a wood roof.
Thanks for the help, I want to do what is right for my little quail.
tl;dr: Quail has had paralyzed legs since thursday, but otherwise seems ok. What do I do?
