    Ok, so i have quail that is a month old. I noticed today it's neck is funky. Kinda twisting to the right. I was wondering if quail get wry neck like chickens?? I am feeding qame feed that is 28% and grinded up cause they are small. Fresh water and they are under a 85 watt blue light.

    Is there anything to give it? I gave it a drop of poly vit's today. HELP!!!! It is my only tuxedo and i like it and wanna help it if i can!!!

    I had one born with what I think was wry neck. I cut a piece of duct tape and wrapped around his neck. Now I couldn't tell you which one he is. Worked for him. Might work for yours.

    Mine was completing doing flips his neck was so drawn up.
