    Just wanted to tell everyone i found this trick on this forum buy cant find it again lol but u take the quail chick with the bad legs and put him in a small cup or glass (shot glass works great) this makes his legs stay under him and after a few hours he gets stronger and normally hops out on his own good as new i just tried this method and out of 7 with nad legs 6 were fixed in less than 4 hours and back with the rest of the chicks happy and healthy

    Somebody did this here on these forums. They said it helped the chick out greatly, but we never got an update on the chicks condition. Using this technique is like physical therapy and would strengthen the legs for sure. [​IMG]
