    I had 10 gamel quail chicks hatch out 5 days ago, 2 days ago I lost 3, and today I lost 5. I grind the crumbles so they can eat, they drink fine. The temps around 95-97 under the heat lamp. Any idea?

    Are they showing any symptoms of disease such as droopiness, in order for us to help you need to tell us symptoms.

    I had the same problem with about 50 quail, they all died within 48 hours of each other [​IMG] Seemed to be some sort of respiratory disease.

    It's so odd they're running around fine as can be then boom their stone dead. Stools a little runny
