    I have six button quail that hatched my niece dropped one and the next day it's leg was bent side ways.It still does normal thing's but i wanted to know if i could fix it's leg somehow? I thought i could tie yarn from one leg to the other but it's leg keep's slipping out of the yarn.

    i wouldn't use yarn. you could try the bandaid thing maybe...do a search on here for the info on splay/spraddle leg and try that instead of the yarn .
    it's leg could be broken or dislocated . a vet may be needed..
