We went away for a few days and having moved house didn't know anyone to watch the quail so put lots of food in and hoped for the best... came back to find our youngest female holding her wing strangely. some days later she was still not tucking it in properly and best i can describe it is her wing is shivering but the rest of her isn't.
closer inspection and this is her wing; half of it seems to be missing! no flight feathers at all. pulling it out for inspection she was ok with but folding it back in seems to cause discomfort.
Any suggestion what to do with her and what might have been going on welcome!
she was one of 2 chicks our quail hatched last year. Also found our male dead today so no idea what's going on :/
