    Hi, everyone! I've noticed that one of my button quail's nostrils is clogged. Any suggestions on what to do? I've tried wetting it with a wet towel, but that didn't seem to help.

    You can try toweling her up with her head still deep in the towel. Get a tooth pick and GENTLY pick out the nostril. You may need to hold her head still. I have done this on my chickens many times. Never with my quail but you might be able to get some of it out this way.
