    i have a quail roo i bought at a local trade days, i bought him thinking he was fine, then as i was leaving, in my car i noticed that it had bumblefoot, i thought i could keep it ok for a while, but after losing its mate i think it has started to grieve:/, because its mate just died, because of a really cold night, and i dont think he is eating, because he is really weak, and i just noticed that it had dried poo on its foot, [​IMG] thinking i was doing the right thing i tried to get the poo off of his foot, i made him bleed a little and now he is limping, because after i pulled the poop off he started bleeding, please any one who knows anything, i would love to find out any thing to help him, does he possibly need another mate

    If you haven't already, for starters put the little guy somewhere comfortably warm and quiet and dry with all his creature comforts close at hand. Because he's ailing he won't be able to endure cold right now....
