    I need to know what to do, have tried everything but surgery. If someone has video on the surgery for a Quail I would love to see it so I know what I am doing. What do you feed them after the surgery. PLEASE HELP !!!!!!

    Unless you're a veterinarian, I dont think surgery is going to be a good option.. I have not see any videos of surgery on quail. Sorry to hear you have a bird with such a difficult problem

    you can find lots of videos on you tube that deal with chickens with this problem. Are you sure this is whats wrong with your bird? It is really best left to the pros but if you are going to process these birds then it might be best to do it now. good luck.

    Thank you for the advice she is only a month old so processing her wouldn't yield much. And I am pretty sure it's an impacted crop cause on the right side of her neck theres a hard lump and no it does not go down in morning.
