    Button Quail Cage Questions

    baby coturnix hatched without absorbing all of the yolk sack....

    The best you can do is allow it to rest. Many times they will still absorb the Yolk Sack after coming out of the egg. Good luck with it, David

    Has anyone had this happen?

    I agree... What I do is take an index card and cut a little piece out of it the shape of the foot including the three toes. Then take thin strips of adhesive tape (1/4" wide) Set the foot on the "boot" and tape the toes to it. Generally within about 3 days the toes will straighten and be...

    When is it OK to remove heat source?

    If they are indoors they should be fine... Outdoors and the temp went below 60 I'd consider additional heat that they could get far enough away from it if they didn't want it. David

    question about distressed hen

    She will mourn for a while but she should try laying again. Unless she thinks it's too late in the year to hatch and raise Poults before Winter. But as hot as it is around here at least I doubt Winter is on her mind other than wishing it were here. David
