    I have a baby quail who has bent toes and walks on his belly! He also has a crooked back so his neck goes down and his head goes up (a funny kind of shape) can someone help please. He walks on his belly with the help of his knees

    Sounds like he has spraddle leg and possible wry neck. Both can be treated successfully in some cases.

    Here is some info on wry neck

    Here is some info on spraddle leg aka splay legs.
