    I have a two day old Bobwhite Quail that has a foot that is kinda curled up. I don't remember seeing it this way until today. Can I tape a piece of cardboard to it to straighten it out? Or is there something else I should do?
    Thanks

  3. You can make a little splint or "boot" with a couple of band-aids. That should fix the problem in very little time.

    I found especially with quail that mine didn't have to stay on very long, usually a day will do it.
