    Coturnix quail chick can’t get up

    I’ve never had that in my quail or chickens. I bought these from a hatchery and had a couple die from the same problems he was having. I’ll try the electrolytes and do all that you asked. He isn’t separated from the other chicks. I haven’t really thought of checking his poop.

    Coturnix quail chick can’t get up

    I’ve had problems with this chick with balance and he was just fine and would get around okay, now he just drags himself across the ground. His legs cross over each other and he doesn’t seem to be able to get the hang of them. I don’t wanna have to put him down. Is there any way I can help him?

    Baby Coturnix Quail legs crossed

    I posted about a baby a while back who seemed to be having balance issues. We couldn’t figure out what was wrong with him, but he seemed just fine. Now, he can’t stand. His legs are crossed and he drags himself around. I don’t want to have to put him down. Is there a way I may help him?

    Is this normal for a chick?

    Thank you! We got extra thermometers and tried it and that’s how we figured out the problems with the incubator.

    Is this normal for a chick?

    I’m not too sure; I had my father buy them rather than myself so I’ll have to ask him in the morning. Our incubator may not be very good though... the thermometer on it reads a higher temperature than what’s inside. The chicks also hatched a day or two late.. could that be a problem?

    Is this normal for a chick?

    I’m sure he’s eating, but I did notice he did have troubles walking the first few days and would be a like a turtle and couldn’t get up after he fell down. Like he didn’t have balance. A few others were like that too but didn’t make it.

    Is this normal for a chick?

    I have a 4 day old coturnix quail chick that is doing this weird thing. He taps his feet like he’s off balance and with his wings drooping. His tail wiggles a bit but I don’t know.
