    This is my first time owning quail, and I've loved every second of it, except for this one problem.

    Alright, so is this bumblefoot? no open wound.

    one of my quail seems to have like a cyst or something on his foot pad, without a noticeable open wound, just a teeny bit of inflammation. It's a soft lump, so it probably isn't cancer, and antibiotics(neosporin) were adminishered topically. What should i do, i don't want to pop it because then...

    Incubating quail and a chicken eggs together

    first time incubating eggs here. I bought a Hova-Bator forced air model 2362E from an individual who threw in 16 chicken eggs and 3 quail eggs. I realize now that I should have placed the quail eggs a few days later so they would all hatch at the same time, but of course I didn’t..... If I raise...

    Hatching quail eggs dilemma

    So it's my first time hatching coturnix quail eggs. They are already in incubator for 2 days and I read online that I'm supposed to have them pointy down until day 15. But apparently as a newbie, I did not. They kind of just lay on their side now and it's an automatic turn incubator. So I don't...
