    I put my chicks outside in a cage after they were feathered out good but in about a week and a half the started dying within 3 days all 25 were dead they had sores on them. Three days later my quail started dying and they have sores on them. The quail were laying. We are infested with mosquitoes since all the rain. Can anyone tell me what is causing them to die.

    Hi and welcome to BYC - I'm sorry that it is not under happier circumstances that you join us.

    I'd suggest re-posting in the "Emergencies, diseases, injuries and cures" forum for help from the experts.

    All the best
