He was in the incubator alone hours so I moved him into the brooder , hes dry and cute, but hes not to fussed on eating or drinking yet , Im using my finger to peck at the food and he seems to be trying but not much , i have water out with marbles ect but i did use a dropper and put it at his beak and he still wasn't bothered with water,
I have YouTube baby quail sounds on beside the incubator to try encourage the other 4 to hatch , so im really hoping atleast one does so hes not alone,
Is there anything else I should or shouldn't do 🥰
Im absolutely in love with this little guy 🥰🌞🐣 xx
It seems like he’s doing great. Looking at the photo, it seems the crumble might be a bit large for him, I put mine in the blender and make it powder for the first few days. He will probably ignore the large pieces, and only eat the tiniest ones at first. So blending it up causes less waste.

They are button quail chicks i was advised they need food and water earlier than hen chicks , as far as i can remember 🙈
They are both in the brooder together now and seem more content , his umbilical cord came away its only a small bit remaining now thankfully so think it will just dry up and fall off eventually, Thank you for your help ❤🐣

yes it happened my last eggs , only one bantam chick hatched and im convinced it died of loneliness, he loved YouTube sounds of other chicks and a mirror but definitely nothing better than a real friend,
this little one was calling out all day and now we put the other one out .. he calls out and the other one moves really fast and they meet and snuggle and drop down together like their dead lol i,ve had a few mini heart attacks today but they just sleep then back up run around, then fall in their stand lol x
