I have 2 two-week old baby quail, when they hatched the hen who hatched them would drag them by the toes (she only did for a very short time but the damage had already been done at that point) and now the toes are beginning to fall off, one has already fallen off and is super inflamed and slightly discolored, is there anything I can do to help this and prevent any other toes from possibly getting infected? I plan on changing out the bedding first, anything I should use to make sure everything ends up ok?

Ok I've changed the bedding, disinfected the wounds with hydrogen peroxide, and also put bacitracin on the wounds

Yikes! With chickens I’d say do a warm epsom salt soak, but getting a 2-week-old quail to hold still is difficult at best.
