my friend has ten cortunix quail she got in october. they were 5 weeks old when she got them, and did quite well until recently. They started picking at each other pretty bad, and so far 2 have died. Their backs are totally featherless above their tail feathers, and quite bloody, and even on some of their heads. She seperated the ones that were badly injured, and they recovered, but after being reintroduced to the flock, within a couple of days, they were beat up again. Last night I got her the rooster booster anti pick lotion and we put it on them. One of them looked pretty bad, and this morning it had died. She said the ones that have died were very wet on their chest and stomach area. Does anyone know if this is an indication of a disease, or just stress? The one that died last night had laid an egg in the morning, and it was green, which doesn't seem normal for a quail, but I know nothing abiut them, so maybe it is! Any advice is highly appreciated!!
