    SeptemberQuail Chillin' With My Peeps

    She's a week and a day old now. Japanese quail chick.
    She hatched normally, but had curled toes which healed the next day.
    She's been using her whole leg to walk, but when she runs, she's able to run on her feet instead of her legs, but still waddles.

    Don't worry, she's just sleeping. ^.^



    Even when leaning her legs against my knee, her knee's kind of bend inwards, leading to her legs to turn outwards.

    Is there anything I can do that doesn't involve antibiotics?
    If it does, then what kind?

    Every reply is taken into consideration and appreciated!

    The only suggestion I have besides those posted in the other thread...would be to build her a mini version of a.chicken chair. It might help her lengthen and strengthen her legs....
