    In the morning, I went to check on my quail and found my quail girl badly injured. I took it in and my mom sprayed on antibiotic. The quail seems to be blind and when she breathes, it seems like she has a snotty nose. She travels from corner to corner, and she cant open her mouth and cant eat. CAN I SAVE HER?! IS THERE ANY CHANCE SHE WILL LIVE?! I will get more pics if needed.

    Was it another quail that did it? I just had two coturnix get into a fight and the bigger one scalped the smaller and so far heis pulling through

    I thought that but my brother doesnt think so. My coop (guess=3-4X2-3 ft) has blood on the roof, floor and bars are full of feathers. The 2 quail are the same size and the other one isnt hurt except for a dried blood stain.

    I wouldnt be surprised if it was another coturnix, my injury looks extremely similar except for no throat damage. I have a lot of blood on the cage now too. Apply neosporin without pain relief(its harmful) That is what Twocrows suggested to me and so far I am on day 3 of the injury and he is doing fine, just dont loose hope and keep treating

    and if the other isnt hurt I am leaning more towards the other quail did the damage, the mean one I had got along with no one so now he is in the freezer (he was a jumbo meat type anyway)
