They can fully recover, sadly this happens fairly frequently with quail. Usually it is the hens. How is your ratio of males to females? Usually one male per pen seems to be enough.
One of them wasn't very bad and I'm sure would've recovered but the other looked like he was gonna lose an eye plus the wound was oozing down his face. It was in an all boy pen so the girls were in their pens. I've got a ratio of 1:2, 2:2, 1:2, and 1:1 right now. I only ended up with 7 hens out of the hatch. I'm hoping to add a few hens from my most recent hatches.
