Newly hatched quail issues PLEASE HELP

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

My quail just started to hatch and the majority were fine, but the last 2 to hatch are having problems. One is lop-sided in movement and can't stand up, and the other has, I believe, spraddle leg. I waited a couple of hours before I moved them from the incubator to the brooder, but they still have trouble moving. Is there anything I can do?

You can type in "spraddle leg" in the search bar on this website and it'll pull up a bunch of good info to fix spraddle leg. Never had to do it myself but it seems to be a pretty easy thing to fix with chicks

The spraddle leg doesn't seem to be much of a problem anymore, but the one that keeps lying on its side and is unable to stand up is still worrisome.

Nevermind, it's dead. Thanks for nothing, crap forum.

Yes, it is this forum that killed the chick.  I know you are frustrated, but come on......  Posting crap like that is going to make people SUPER look forward to helping you next time.  How are the rest of them?  Hope they do well!

...I didn't blame the forum for the death of my chick, I blamed it for giving me nothing other than "Look up Sprattle leg." Which is rather common knowledge for the situation while I clearly needed first-hand solutions for this issue on the tiny, hard to manage, quail chicks legs.

The person said they had not dealt with it personally, so they gave the best suggestion they could.  You have essentially crapped on their honest attempt to point you in the right direction and have implied that unless someone knows exactly how to fix your problem in great detail, they should keep their mouths shut.  Just want to make you aware.  Not trying to start an argument.  Just trying to make sure you know how you are coming off when you make the comments you do.

 

How are the other babies?  How many hatched?
