    Hey all!
    im back! The babies are self sufficient in food now thank to you, still working on water but getting there!
    However, their poop is green. I’m fairly sure they were immunized but Im worried about possible disease. Is this normal? The quails are secluded from all other animals and being brooded in a enclosed room indoors in the basement, no outside interference besides me, and I wash my hands every time. Is green poop normal??

    Excellent! They didn’t defecate much the first day until they had ate and drank, it’s more today because today is the first full day they’ve spent with all-access to food and water. I’ll keep you posted! Thanks! Expect more questions from this worried momma
