    I just hatched out some Quail and out of the 11 that hatched yesterday, I woke up to one this morning just laying there and not moving much. Every so often it will kinda shake and make a noise thats not chirping..kinda like he is getting pecked but he's not. It does have a hard time holding its head up but its just laying there and breathing. It's brothers and sisters would lay beside it and not let other trample it before i sepreated them, Is there anything I can do? I honestly wouldn't mind culling it but, the woman of the house refuses to let it be culled. Any adivce?
