My coturnix quail has a small plastic legband imbedded into her leg. I noticed her limping a few weeks ago and thought thought she just had a small sprain becuase she got better quickly, but today when I was cleaning their pen I noticed the band. It is pretty deep in her leg, and the skin around is swollen. I don't know how to get it off because every time I hold her she freaks out. Do you have any suggestions how I can keep her calm and get the band off without harming her? Thanks.
