Hi, I have my 4 bobwhite quail chicks that are almost 4 weeks old, well today i decided to turn off their heat lamp for a few hours, to prepare them for when i'll put them in their pens outside with no heat lamp and their fully feathered. Well when i went back to check them all the quails were huddled under each other and i immediately turn the lamp back on. When the chicks moved i noticed two quails that didn't look too good, they were lying with their legs stretched as if they were going to die . I couldnt understand why they were like that but i knew i had to do something to help them out. I looked on this forum and found that i should give them sugar water or even gadorade or pedialight to perk them up. I immediately went to give them sugar water, i was just praying that they wouldn't go. It was just amazing that a few mintues after i gave them the sugar water they went from weak and sluggish to all of a sudden they were up and walking again as if nothing happened . I was pretty close to losing them but i'm just happy i got them that sugar water. The sugar water saved their life, I will always remember this for next time.
