    My White Coturnix died just like that ,there was no signs of sickness, she's about 6 weeks old . it was healthy yesterday and eating and everything I don't get it , why did she died just like that ???!
    I'm worried about the other Quails .
    Anyone have any ideas??

    Could she have gotten into anything toxic over night?

    Could a predator have spooked her?

    Hi and :welcome from Ohio. So glad to have you aboard. Sorry for your loss. I lost an 8 week old duckling this summer for no apparent reason as well. I still can't figure it out. All we can do is hope it doesn't happen again. :fl
