We had 27 quail destined for the freezer in about 2 weeks. We have been separating the males and females to try to limit the fighting. In the hen house we have one male, which will be staying around as a replacement roo. Tonight we noticed that the girls must have gotten in a small fight and one rosetta hen had a bloody wound though not too bad. We got her out and cleaned her up, she fought the whole thing. On the walk back to the hen house she spazzed one more time and died. She was otherwise healthy and of decent weight, not obese anything. I'm somewhat afraid to handle these birds now cause I dont want them dead yet. None of them are tame because they aren't pets. How common is death by handling with them? Also, during the inspection I found a pharaoh hen that has a swollen head. It's not hard, and doesn't feel puss filled. It's just the top of her head. She does have a tiny peck mark but I dont think it's infected. The skin is loose though. Is it possible she's been popcorning and hitting her head? or do you think it's something else?
