I'm so upset. Bad hatches, weak chicks, then a quail explostion, now this. I had 3 breeds Corturnix that had been in garage since I got them. I have no way to keep them cool in there so very early this morning an I set up another pen I had got at an auction, Made sure they had plenty of shade food and water and they looked so happy. It's 103 here. I had set a gallon waterer with the nipple attachments in with them, but sometime in the last 2 hours I lost my birds. I watched them for almost and hour and the waterer was fine. No drips, but its almost empty, 2 of my birds are dead and I put a contaner of water in the pen and had to pick my last bird up and set him in it. He's doing fine now, but I lost two. I can't believe I'm even asking this, but I hate not to use them. Can these two birds be butchered??? I know that didn't die from anything other than heat stroke, but I don't know if that a no no. BTW I've never processed before, but I can watch a youtube video or something after I cut the heads and drain the blood. I know they were alive 2 hours ago, bit not how long ago they actually died. I feel like a murdered for letting them die like that.
