Hi,

I have a quail, with a large wound on the back of its head. So far I've put a very diluted amount of TCP and water solution on it, along with flour to help stop the bleeding. What else should I do. It's under a heat lamp inside, so no other will attack it.

Thanks,

MIne have done this as well .. Keep him seperate until the redness has gone down.. i do however reccomend you keep him where he/she can talk to the other quail.. The first time I took one in the house for recovery I never was able to put it back in with the others as they would attack it brutally... But I seperated my buttons because of head picking and made sure they could call to eachother (and beleive me they did, nonstop) and when I put him back we didnt have a single problem... Just a thought I havent tested this theory yet but I did observe it..

I read on a different post that someone used "liquid skin" when they had a quail that had a head injury and appeared to be scalped and it healed right up. You might try that.
