Hi guys Sorry but I'm new here and not sure if this is the right place to post but I am desperate. I was keeping 6 Coturnix Quail in my backyard. They are caged with about 3 square foot each. They are about 7 weeks old and all hatched from the same batch. There are three whites and three browns. One of the whites is a male. I moved them into this larger cage on Saturday. They seemed to be doing fine over the past few days. I was away in Dublin yesterday so didn't get to check on them as often as I usually do. When I came back I was horrified to find one of them was wounded really badly. It really broke my heart! All her feathers and skin on the back of her head looked like it had be stripped away and there was blood everywhere. It looked like it had happened some time ago as the wound was swollen and the blood really congealed (see pics). Right away I suspected a predator though they are really well enclosed. I brought the poor thing inside and got a separate cage ready. Wanting to make sure the others were still okay I took another look outside and found that ANOTHER one now had similar yet less severe wounds and blood was all over the feeder which is nowhere near the wire. I then knew it was one of the other birds. I believe it was the male as he had been getting rather aggressive. So I segregated him right away. After doing some research I see that I need to make a few adjustments to lessen their stress. However what I am most worried about is treating the descalped hen. She it really bad. I have put the two wounded hens in "hospital" and stuck the male in solitary. Which leaves three brown hens in he main cage. I cleaned the wounds and applied antiseptic. But I don't know what else to do. I am pretty sure the least injured will be fine but the other one has a lot of flesh missing from the scalp! I heard some mention stitching but there really wasn't anything left to stitch. Should I keep applying cream and making her comfy? Or should I cull the poor thing? I don't want her to suffer more than she needs to. Please help! Here are some pics from before I got them cleaned up properly: And help would be GEATLY appreciated!!!
