    My quail has its intestines hanging out of its butt. I had this happen to a chicken and fixed it with Preparatory H but I tried that with the quail and its intestines just keeps falling back out. I didn't get to it till this morning and she had an egg hanging out caught. I got the egg out but the instines wouldn't stay in her. What do I do?

    Oh god, I don't know much but I'd say isolate the quail from the others so that they don't peck it out. No idea how to fix I'm sorry

    id cull it too. prolapses are hard to treat and even harder to keep fixed. sorry but culling would be the most humane thing to do. if she keeps laying, they will keep coming back out :( :(
