That pretty much sums it up. I've been reading along with you guys for a few months now. I have a new incubator (which failed) and jerry rigged it to work anyway with electrical supplies. This is my first hatch. And...there's something going on. I am hatching coturnix and button quail. I had a chick last night not doing so well. I thought from the way it was acting that maybe it was dehydrated. Enter a little sugar water and making it drink. That really didn't do a whole lot at the time. Then I moved it from the brood box to the incubator, where it was a little warmer. This morning, it seemed fine again - fairly strong, very active, and alert. Now, most of the quail chicks are exhibiting similar symptoms. They've had free access to water and I taught them how to drink and there's been game feed powder all over the floor of the enclosure. In case the issue is heat, I've moved them back to the incubator for warmth and some have perked up. Symptoms are as follows: Eye or eyes closed Poor equilibrium (lots of lopping) Somewhat listless No discernible eye goop or running of noses, etc. Thoughts?
