We have had a disaster of a week with the quail.
On day 4 they started dying. 5-15 per day. I initially though they were drowning in the water as some were wet. This cost me valuable time with r=trying to treat them.
We then treated with Corid.
Then we added Di-Methox.
No resolution. Chicks just keep dying. The go from jumpy little quails to dead with no warning and few symptoms.
I am now working on a diagnosis of ulcerative enteritis - an infectious diseas cause by clostridium colinum. It seems to be the only thing that makes sense. I switched to oxytetracycline. We dont have bacitracin so the second choice antibiotic will have to suffice.
We dont have a lot of quail left.
I will know tonight if we have turned the corner.
