In the Brooder
- Aug 4, 2021
a few hours ago i notice one of my male quails (4 months old) acting lethargic, he'd get all fluffy and puffed up and would close his eyes for some time. he feels a little bit lighter and skinnier compared to a few other quails. Im not really sure what to do with him, so far we quarantined him and given him some medicated water (just some electrolytes and extra vitamins). its been fairly warm today which makes me concerned that hes not drinking. i forced him a bit of water just to keep him hydrated. im hoping whatever it is that it isnt contagious, my whole flock could be at risk. i haven't noticed anything else out of the ordinary, the rest of the flock seems fine but ill check on them and him again later.
