We have 10 quail, 6 white and 4 brown. They recently started crowing and laying (2 eggs yesterday). As of now they are kept in a large cage on the ground just outside the house, with some greenery and branches for cover. They seem much happier since we put that stuff in the cage. Yesterday one of them got a bloody eye and was fluffed up in a corner. We -thought- it was female and might be egg-bound. After some "treatment" she seemed better and was moving and eating again. Couple hours later, "she" crowed. So. male! The eye looked only cut a bit and we thought he'd be fine. Then this morning the eye was horrible cut and pecked and so swollen he couldn't see from it, and the other eye was cut too, as well as the nostrils in the beak. We dabbed it all with some healing spray recommended by vet, and isolated him in a box with a low-heat light, since he was fluffed and shivering. I read some different stuff regarding giving them heat: Sick birds need heat light, injured birds need darkness? And yes, I also found/read that males can't live together or they fight, so we're trying to think of how to separate the rest of the males. Here are some pictures. If anyone can suggest something else I can do please let me know. I wouldn't like to put him down, but I would if he's just going to suffer. He's drinking on his own, don't know if he's eating yet, but he is pooping, and after we treated the eyes he can just -barely- open that right one. Left one isn't nearly that bad, but still a bit bloody. Temp is currently 84 and gradually rising.
