    He's my pet button quail, and I was just holding him (i always hold him) and a large bird flew by and scared him, so he jumped out of my hands and flew as high as he could!!! I was so afraid that he would fly into the busy street right behind my house, but instead, he turned around and flew right into the freezing pool! I picked him up as fast as i could! could thing he at least TRIED to swim. Now, his feathers are all wet, and he's shaking like crazy. i have him wrapped in a warm, dry towel and he's with my right now.

    Is he going to be okay?!?!?! PLEASE!![​IMG]

    Will this cause his to stress out and die? Will the sudden cold temperature cause him to get sick? PLEASE!! I need help!!

    just keep it warm, dry its feathers with a blow dryer if possible and keep an eye on it.
