    i have a pr of coturnix that are 12 weeks old and have not had a problem with them until now.

    A bit over week ago I hatched 110 quail chicks from 3 separate sources,

    A few days later the chicks started dying. 5-10 per day. Some look wet. others not. there noses are clear and their poop is normal.

    its today the adult female has swollen legs and cannot walk

    they are on mesh flooring above the gtround, they all are being fed 23% protein. I added vitamins and minerals to their water a while back and dimethox yesterday to the chicks

    any ideas????

    The swollen legs can be from the mesh floor.
