    Help Button to walk again!

    Button is a pretty little Coturnix quail, only 4 1/2 months old. I adopted her int on my loving home recently as her owner couldn’t care for a disabled girl. She was hatched with her siblings, grew up living her best life. When she was about 6 weeks old she started walking oddly, which quickly...

    Wtf is this in poop?

    Hi all, I am usually a hoverer, reading everything but never there in time to answer before everyone else! In need of a second opinion - I picked up this girl a few weeks ago from someone with no experience taking care of quail. She’s only 4 months old or so, has 6 big spots of bumblefoot on...

    Poorly wing?

    I’ve been lucky to never have wing injuries before, but this morning my girl has started doing this holding one of hers out to the side: I’m fairly sure she hasn’t boinked or anything so I’m not sure how she’s done anything to it! What do you think? In need of a vet visit?

    Hi all, I’ve read all I can on here about this but looking for some opinions. Chick is a couple days old. Very lethargic, still eats and drinks but needs encouragement.

The male was introduced 6 months ago - he is very submissive and quiet as he was a rescue who had been pecked and bullied half to death. they have a huge space to run and several places to hide so no...

    Squishy lump on quail chick

    Hi all, Do baby quail have a crop? This one is 5 days old and has a squishy lump on her chest, slightly to one side. The pics are at the end of the day, and I haven’t noticed it before.

    Poorly quail chick

    Hi all, So I got given this tiny now 3 day old chick yesterday because it was poorly. It had twisting feet which I've dealt with already by splinting and wrapping them. It's also quite wobbly and sleepy. The others were all pecking it ad stepping on it. I think a big problem is when it falls...

    Honking quail?

    I rescued this little man a while back - he’s very happy now and adores his little flock. He had a bad life before, was horrendously picked on by like 7 other males, and was just a withdrawn little thing when we got him, barely moving or eating. Although he’s happy now and his feathers have...

    Hi all, hoping some of the more experienced quailers can confirm that this is bumblefoot? First two pictures included for reference - they are two different quail who I think have it. I have researched everything I can about bumblefoot so I’m happy to treat, just want some reassurance that is...

    Newbie - please help!

    Hi all, I’ve read everything I can on here but I also tend to worry over nothing so worth asking! I have two courtonix quail and the hen is losing some feathers. From this forum I’ve learnt that this could be mites or lice, and she also sometimes opens her mouth and sneezes, and she sometimes...

    Quail sound

    So I rescued a quail when she was 5 weeks old, had her nearly a month now. She gets handled a lot and always gets her fave foods when I hold her, although it does seem 50/50 whether she enjoys it or gets stressed. I think I’ve figured out her happy little cheeps from when she’s eating her fave...
