    Please Help tiny Serama hen egg still stuck

    Have you given her crushed tums? It’s a calcium boost. Keep lubing vent, can use coconut oil. Being egg bound too long can kill her. Keep trying to work the egg out gently. Keep us posted

    Is the best thing to put her to sleep?

    I am new to poultry and I’ve never dealt with bumble foot before but I have found it to be very nasty and hard to treat. After doing multiple Epsom salt soaks for weeks, PRID drawing salve, Vetericyn etc I took my quail to the vet. He insisted he could treat her non-surgically, just by using...

    Quail with very swollen foot!

    Just wanted to give an update - I sent pictures to a vet who consulted a poultry specialist and they confirmed they both thought it was bumble. After months, both spots in her foot came to a head and you can see the little round abscesses. After seeing that, I knew I needed to cut her open -...

    Quail with very swollen foot!

    I know that’s why it’s so hard to treat. Like I said she has been on very strong antibiotics that would kill any bacteria and has had two rounds. I’ve also done every other treatment possible and it has not improved. Other than that she can now walk on it. I don’t think it is bumble, all of the...
