    Okay had one quail that was a runt didn't think alot about it but then I noticed he walked around looking like he was struting but actually his wings were always spread down at his sides. Well today he died and I notice that I have other ones that are walking around with there wings this way.

    Is this something to be concerned about?

    They also have plenty of feed and water but I now notice they are eating there own poop now, is there something I can give them to stop this or will they out grow it?

    Thanks for any help.
    God Bless
