    What are we doing wrong with our chicks?

    Hey everyone! Am new to this forum and made an account in the hopes that someone might be able to help with these issues we've been having with our Japanese quail babies. We're still pretty new to quailing in general and hatched the first chick on Nov 10. The first 2 chicks we got died...

    I fear a couple things are going on.

    So this morning, I received my batch of day-old chicks through the mail (I wish it were possible to physically get them from the hatchery because I dislike putting the babies through that stress). They all seemed good and chipper with no signs of immediate issue. I gave them food and water as...

    My chick keeps sneezing?

    Hello! I am new to all this. I was gifted my very first 2 chicks on May 17th. I was told they were 6 weeks old and were both road-island red hens. We were unprepared to say the least, we had nothing for them at all. So off we went to the store to try to get them set up. They are now in a rabbit...

    I think one of my baby chicks is hurt

    I saw a very tiny amount of blood and she is limping, and the wood chips I kept her on made her unable to walk and kept acting like she was rolling. I very gently picked her up and examined their feet but i'm not a veterinarian and I didnt know where the blood was coming from and I plan to take...

One of the chicks that we had to bring to finishing hatching had not fully absorbed the yolk and has a odd prolapse to the right of its vent (not attached to the vent or yolk). It's gotten bigger since morning...

    Recurring Pasty butt?? Please help

    I'm really worried about one of my new D'uccle chicks. We've raised plenty of chicks, and I've had my fair share of pasty butt. We always treat it the same way, and it usually works just fine. But Marguerite (my porcelain baby) has been having pasty butt over and over and over. We clean her off...

    Help one sick chick. And now noticed all the other healthy acting have blue/grey eyes

    what do I do? I have 15 chicks all acting healthy but now have blue/grey eyes. They did not hatch this way. Mareks Disease is what I’m reading. But do I have to euthanize all these checks even though they’re acting healthy? Someone please give me advice

    Chick may have broken neck? Slobbering and shuffling backwards.

    So I have 12 chicks, about 4 weeks old. The bigger ones enjoy jumping into the edges of their box and roosting since they are inside and not outside. I have a feeling that one may have cluelessly jumped down on this smaller chick. She has been acting strange lately. She still eats and was...
