    Ok so I have 5 baby quail chicks,there all about 3 weeks old and just today I noticed one kinda running in half circles like it cant walk straight and its falling around like its drunk.It backs up like its gonna poop but it doesnt.Does anyone know what this is?I just put some sulmet in there waterer and im hoping she gets better tonight.If it helps shes still making her way to the waterer and food and eating and drinking it.
