    Is it on the underside? I'm going to guess you've got a little bit of the belly button/umbilical cord sticking out. It's pretty common in larger birds like the ducks I usually hatch, and not really a problem. I have no idea whether it's a problem for quail, but I'm going to guess it will probably heal up on its own pretty quickly. But a picture would definitely help us figure out what it is. [​IMG]
