    I'm new to this and am on here because I need professional help with my new "family". My dog found a bird in our backyard, and we decided to keep it. After much research we found it is a female cortunix quail and she is the tamest thing! 3 days later a neighbor came over and said he had found one in his backyard so we said we'd take it. It turned out to be a male! A week later the female started laying eggs and so we decided to get an incubator. 1st egg started to hatch but didn't make it out.. so we put 4 more eggs in, one hatched of that bunch July 21, 2011 and is doing AMAZING, 2nd one hatched 2 days later and is a little "different", He has a crooked neck and curled feet (which I now have taped with bandaids after much research about that) I've posted another post about my concerns for this little one as I don't know what's best for him. I love all of them and am very familiar with animals and farm animals, my mom worked with birds and was a vet assistant and worked with many animals. We love all of our animals and I'm hoping to find some new information to add onto my knowledge!
    Thanks! [​IMG] Would love some insight and help on our "different" baby named Iigor.
