i have a pair of chinese painted quails. the male is about 3 months old and the female about three weeks. i had this incident about three days ago where i left my male quail loose inside my room and accidentally stepped on it. i felt so terrible to injure the poor thing and it must be painfull for it. he seems to have recovered up to a point but there are 2 problems. well maybe 3.
First, it's body stance doesn't seem right. he walks and sit's like a hunchback. i can help him with my hands to get a normal stance but when i leave him alone he humps.. :/
Second, his poop seem like he is having diaria and the get stuck on his butt. i have to bath him in warm water to get them off..
And lastly, i got the female 3 days ago. the male didn't have any particular smell the whole time i had it but the female does have a bad smell and i think it's spreads to the male as well (it's not the smell from the poop problem, i can tell)
If anyone had any experience with the above problems i would be very gratefull to hear his story. Any advice at all would be very welcomed!!
