Can someone please help me? My quail are not doing well. They've had endless drama since birth. First, they were born without their mother being there (they are wild birds). Then, I move them outside after about a week of having them. There were too many holes in their 'temporary' coop, and seven escaped; nowhere to be found. We moved them back in, and worse yet... a chick died. Now I am left with two lonely chicks out of the original ten. And more drama yet, they aren't eating their game bird starter!! Don't bash me for not knowing how to feed these birds; it wasn't my fault that ten baby quail appeared all alone in my front lawn. Having not owned them before, there was no way of knowing what they eat. I fed them nothing but crickets and houseflies for most of their time here. Realizing that this obviously wasn't a complete diet, I went and picked up some game bird starter (thanks to a fellow BYCer for reccommending it). They are being such snobs! They won't eat anything but bugs, bugs, and more bugs. Now, I believe they're suffering from serios vitamin B deficiency; they're both limping. That can't be coincidence that they both hurt their feet at exactly the same time, it has to vitamin B deficiency. There was another thread related to mine that someone was experiencing the exact same difficulties. A few responses said that it was a vitamin B problem, which I find quite believable knowing that my birds eat nothing but insects. I am at a total loss with what to do. How can they ever get enough vitamins if they never eat the game bird feed? Help me!!! Please!!!
