    I noticed one of my quail is acting weak. She is all fluffed up and falls if she trips over something. She is still acting the same very friendly for a quail but im just trying to do everything I can for her not to get even sicker. Please help

    :( Sorry to hear that... Whenever a quail is out of sorts the first thing I think of is if they've bumped their head?

    Are her feet/legs okay?

    I suggest you seperated her to a quiet and warm place with food and water. If you have any give her vitamins, electrolytes, or nutri drench in her water. If not even some honey in the water will give a boost of energy.

    Could very well be from boinking her head and there's not much you can do for that other than a chance to rest. Without other symptoms it's hard to say if it's something else.

    I would think it might be coccidiosis. Did the quails have a contact with a dirt/ground? How old are they?

    They are all laying eggs right now but they will be a year and two months next week. her legs and feet are fine I checked everything I always give them honey and some vitamins for exotic birds in their foot and fine crack corn to keep them gaining the perfect amount of wait for winter. They are not that heavy though they are my show quail so I keep them in perfect condition as possible. So thats why I want her to stay well be cause now I spent so much time with them they are so nice and I am so attached to every one of them.
