I had a female button die last week. The tips of her toes were pretty swollen, but I wasn't sure what the cause was. Now her cage mate has come down with the same symptoms, but worse. It's like he has elephantiatis (sp?) of the feet. They're HUGELY swollen, all the way up his legs. I keep the pair in a rubbermaid tub with a really thick layer of yesterdays news as bedding. Could it be from walking on feces? Is there anything I can try to save this quail? And does anyone have any ideas about what it might be? Thanks in advance.
