    My 3 week coturnix quail is soaking wet, he jumped into a watering dish that was left open, I don't know how long he was there. I dried him using a towel and put him in the incubator, anything else I can do? do you think he'll survive?
    Thanks

    Hair dryer on low! You can try the high setting but just make sure you arent burning him.

    He should be fine.

    Some warm oats or oatmeal would probably make him feel better too [​IMG]

    I just gave my Serama and Silkie a bath today... they like the hair dryer for some reason... my little serama even laid down on her side as if sitting in the sun [​IMG]
