Puffy quail with runny nose lethargic

    So I just checked on the quails and noticed one didn't come for treats. She is puffy and sleepy and not eating anything.
    I got the hospital ready while hubby got her inside. He noticed a whole bunch or liquid apparently from both nose and beak.
    I tried to feel for an egg and I'm pretty sure it was just her breath bone I could feel. Gave her a warm bath (for about 1 minute - she wasn't keen for it).

    Might add some cocci vet to her water.

    Not sure if it is related but we got 2 darker brown eggs today (presumably from the other 2 girls).

    If anyone has thoughts or suggestions I'd love to hear them!

    Thanks,
    Pip

    You're welcome. I see that you have also posted on the quail thread which is a good place to check. Hope you can figure it out. The runny nose sounds like a possible respiratory disease, but coccidiosis can cause the other symptoms.
