    I have a baby button quail that has splayed/spraddled legs.

    I have watched all the youtube video's of how to treat this, all shown on nice BIG chicks. I've tried several times now to do the same thing on my button quail chick, but it's just proving impossible because he is so small.

    I'm talking about a Button Quail chick that is just under a day old. Very tiny.

    Is there anyone that has found a way of sorting out splayed legs on a button quail ?

    The easier the better please, lol. I only have two hands, and like i said, i've tried most of the ways found on youtube, and it's just impossible to get done on such a tiny chick.

    Thanks in advance to anyone who can help. I would hate to see this little guy die from not being able to get to the food and water.

    yes, this should be done right after they hatch. take this over to the quail list
