My sons 2nd grade class hatched button quail at the end of last week. They had also hatched a couple Guineas that I offered to take. When I went to the classroom yesterday I noticed that the teacher had the Buttons on newspaper and 2 had splay leg. I explained to her that she should put them on a towel and how with chicks you can use a bandaid to correct it. Well.....today the teacher offered to give the 2 to my son. Long story short, the buttons are now at my house and the thought of applying anything to those tiny little legs is kind of intimidating! I have them on shelf liner right now and they actually seem to be getting around a lot better. They kind of walk around like little bats. Both are eating and drinking well. Do you think the issue will correct itself with the proper footing? or do I HAVE to tape its itty bitty legs. I also heard about placing them in a shot glass as "physical therapy". Any advice is greatly appreciated.
