    Hello I am from Illinois and a newbie to this site and to our 7 six week old coturnix quail. One isn't doing very well and am desperatly trying to learn what to do to help him. There seems to be a lot of very knowledgable people on this site, so I figured I would try my luck posting on this forum.

    One was laying on its side with what looks like a broken or a completely twisted neck. It is so bad that he can't even stand up. I am not sure what do for him. He was always way smaller than the rest.

    Any info would be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks Ele
