Well the onlyother thing I noticed is that when I put the food out they didt run to chow down like the others and that's about it they looked fine beside just laying there and dyeing

did you hatch them yourself?
are they still in the brooder? if so, how often is it cleaned?
are they outside yet? if so, are they near any other animals?
what type of quails do you have?

region of the country might help out a little too.

gonna need more information from ya in order for anyone on here to help ya out, tho we are all willing!

sounds like a heat problem, and humidity, i just moved my males outside today, they are about 4 weeks old now.

jj knows more about this but if it was me, i'd keep them indoors until 4 weeks, thats just what i do tho, if you want to keep them outside i have heard that putting STRAIGHT vit c in their water helps with the heat.

i use to do this, i just took one 500mg tablet crushed it down to powder(with like, the bottom of a shotglass smashing it) and just put it in their water, shake, stir to dissolve.

hope that helps
