    Hello,

    Sadly one of my quails just passed away due to a neck injury, and so I quickly got a new quail so the other wouldn't feel lonely. Little did I realize, the new quail has a pink bump on her beak.
    I'm worried it might be abscess. Can anyone help please? Should I quarantine her?
    Is there anything to heal this quail, or should I just get another.

    If I have to get another, does anyone know any reputable breeder in Orlando?

    You should quarantine it until you know what it is. A little while ago I thought there was something wrong with my quails beak, but it was just the egg yolks I had fed them mixed with dust bath, so just to be sure maybe try wiping it off. Unfortunately it kinda looks like nasal canker which is a really bad disease, google it.
