While at a feed store that has a large stock of chickens and ducks, they had some coturnix for sale. I had recently finished a large new coop/run I though I would jump start filling it with some adult birds instead of waiting for the eggs to incubate. However one of the birds i bought has a problem with her toenails/feet and I want to know what I can do about it. She was the only off colored bird in the bunch and the smallest. When I got them home I notice the others pushed her out and if she found anything cool in the run they came and took it. After that I put her in a "hospital cage" with more warmth and plenty of food. She seems to be healthy (other than actually being a cull, but she's to pretty and too small to want to eat) So can I do anything for her feet, I'd rather try not to euthanize her but obviously a $4 quail is not getting a vet visit. Edit: I raise all of my birds on sand, so she is currently in a sand filled cage and when I bought her she was in a large coop with a dirt floor. The feed store said all of the quail are three months old, however this is the third day I have had them and no eggs out of eight hens so you have to wonder. The feed store also said that they were feeding them 21-23% protein quail and partridge feed. I feed gamebird crumble with 28% mixed with millet or rape seed on occasion as well as some meal worms now and then. I didn't see any calcium (i feed oyster shells) in the coop at the store either but I would assume some of the hens would be laying if he was truthful/knowledgeable about the birds age. .
