Puffy quail with runny nose lethargic

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So I just checked on the quails and noticed one didn't come for treats. She is puffy and sleepy and not eating anything.
I got the hospital ready while hubby got her inside. He noticed a whole bunch or liquid apparently from both nose and beak.
I tried to feel for an egg and I'm pretty sure it was just her breath bone I could feel. Gave her a warm bath (for about 1 minute - she wasn't keen for it).

Might add some cocci vet to her water.

Not sure if it is related but we got 2 darker brown eggs today (presumably from the other 2 girls).

If anyone has thoughts or suggestions I'd love to hear them!

Thanks,
Pip

Here is a BYC link about quail diseases, since I'm not familiar with quail: http://www.backyardchickens.com/a/quail-diseases-health-issues-and-keeping-your-quail-healthy

You're welcome. I see that you have also posted on the quail thread which is a good place to check. Hope you can figure it out. The runny nose sounds like a possible respiratory disease, but coccidiosis can cause  the other symptoms.
