One of our three tiny button quail chicks seems to be having trouble staying on his feet today. Yesterday, he was up and zooming around--possibly the most active of the three. Today, he can only zoom in short bursts, then falls over and rolls onto his back. Most of the time, once he's on his back, he can't right himself without help. We found him this morning on his back, pressed against the base of the waterer--I think he flailed himself to sleep last night. My current thoughts are (and granted, I have basically no idea is any of this is even plausible): -injured leg or wing? He seems to get stuck on his left side most often -exhaustion? He might just still be tired from last night and so keeps falling again -ear damage? our second hen pecked him right on his ear within minutes of him hatching--there was a *tiny* speck of blood, and now there is a tiny scab -brain damage? from ear injury, if it was worse than I thought (he has been totally fine until today) -genetic issue? we did notice yesterday that he was walking much more upright than the other two, like a chicken chick, where the other two already had the classic quail posture. When he sits down, today, he sticks his legs straight out in front of him. He seems to be having trouble keeping them bent, even when hes walking, which inevitably flips him on to his back, where he gets stuck. Does anyone have any thoughts? This is our first round of babies--we had to take their mom away during the first day because she started being agressive towards the chicks when we separated her from her mate (who was also being agressive towards them in the main cage). Two chicks died shortly after hatching (one had a swollen, watery looking lump on the back of his head and had a seizure within 10 minutes of hatching; the other was too weak and died pretty much instantly.)We lost a baby yesterday morning who had gotten "stuck" (confused) in a cold back corner. Now, this little guy, who had been doing so well!, is now worrying me terribly. If you have any thoughts or advice, I would love to hear them.
