Hi all, one of our bobwhite that hatched yesterday has a deformed foot, last night she/he had a hard time getting up, would just move his/her legs around now today he/she is up, doesn't move as quickly as the others do but still moves! What should one do? Thanks!

Rather than a boot, how about a splint? Small piece of toothpick taped to just that toe. that is what I would do for a chicken chick.
I can't imagine doing this to a tiny tiny quail. Chicken chicks are so much larger to deal with.
Either way, good luck.
