Have never had a problem with raising quail and chickens before but this last bunch of chicks (hatchery chicken chicks) came with diaria and then went down with cocci so now I am not too sure what to do when I hatch the next batch of quail eggs. I use a growing out pen I built (snake and dog proof) but thats the pen that the chicklets first came down with cocci in. Its open to the summer sun - and in Florida that sun is pretty intense - right now as I took the cover off, and I wont be getting any eggs for a few weeks but can I use the pen then? It has a dirt floor that I usually rake out between batches of birds. And can/should I use medicated feed for quail chicks? I have never used medicated feed before but will most likely do so from now on. We ate the last of the frozen quail last night and I dont know how long I can wait to grow out some more but its just not worth it to hatch them out and have them die from cocci. Huh, just occurred to me to ask, do quail GET coccidiosis?
