    Last week we got a quartet of bobwhite chicks at the Maryland Poultry Swap. The sign said they were between 5-10 weeks then, but im curious if i can get a more accurate estimate for each. Age of juvie quail ks determined by their primary, feathers so have a look at theirs and have a go.

    RED: my guess 5 weeks exactly

    YELLOW: my guess 6 weeks

    GREEN: another 5 week?

    BLUE: another 6 week?

    BLUE -also had a nail fall off, and had poop crusted on its toe. Should i do anything other than clean it off?
