Our quail chick hatched just minutes ago but there is a big problem. When he hatched his bum was all red and puffy and now it is growing into a sac and leaking some liquid. He is lively and happy but cannot walk yet. Is thid serious!?!?

It sounds like maybe he's having problems absorbing his yolk sac. I've had a few chicks who have hatched with their yolk sac outside of their bodies, sadly, they don't usually make it. I hope yours does, though. I don't know how serious it is, but seeing that it has been 8 hours since you originally posted this if he is still doing well that would be something positive.
