    Does anyone know any good medicine for button quail. Shes sleeping a lot and shes all fluffed up in a corner. Shes eating well but her droppings are mostly water or brown watery. Ive been feesing her a lot of cucumbers and mealworms as well as her feed.

    It could be coccidiosis which can affect any type of poultry, but it also could be some of what she is eating. I would just feed her the feed and an occasional meal worm for a treat. Cucumbers with a lot of water, might possibly be making her poops liquidy. But if she is lethargic and sitting around, I would get some Corid (amprollium) and add it to the water for 5-7 days. Dosage is 2 tsp (10ml) of the liquid or 1 1/2 tsp of the powder per gallon of water as their only source of water.
