    Neosporin should do the trick...not sure if you should put some vet wrap on it or not, it is not bleeding right?

    Little baby is probably in shock and a little stressed out...should perk back up soon and be okay!

    Hopefully someone with more injury experience will sound off soon!

    Do quail molt? I was wondering, because there are a bunch of feathers in the pen.

    if you use neosporin make sure there's no pain ingredient in it...quail toxic ...
    there's a post on here somewhere about Quail first aid items to have on hand ...might want to check it out...

    Yeah somebody made one a while back. You should look at that. It's really helpful when caring for hurt birds. would put some paroxide on his leg.
