Hey guys! So yesterday I hatched about 40 coturnix quail chicks. Everything was going fine, but then tragedy struck! I went to check on them and they were running around, chirping, having a good ol time. I went out side to tend to the chickens,then to my surprise I found a baby chick I was not expecting already. Well I am glad I did! I ran inside to put it in the brooder, and after only being gone for 30 min to 45 min tops. I walk in to find nearly all 40 of the baby quail piled on top of their water dish!!! All sopen wet and screaming. Sadly 9 were already dead and the others were soaked. None of them looked very well so I was fearing the worse! Before leaving work it looks like they all made a recovery just still snuggling up under the heat lamp after their cold swim. I am so thank full I found that chick in the yard because who knows how much longer it would have been for me to go back and check on them! Has anybody else experienced this with quail? Out of my last batch of chicks and quail for a total of 50 birds not a single bird got even their feathers wet and now this only being 24 hours old?!?! What could have caused this? Has anyone experience this before?
