Hello all! I could use some insight! I have 11 five week old quail- 4 males and 7 females I beleive. The smallest of the males is sick, I think. He seems to be separating himself from the crowd, staying up in the coop a lot, and his feathers are consistently ruffled. I first thought he may have poop stuck to him but cleaned him up and he's still ruffled. I also thought he may be getting bullied as I assume the females are about ready to start laying eggs and a pecking order will happen soon BUT I'm not seeing any activity with him and the other males so I'm not sure that is the problem either. He's also breathing hard with his mouth open unlike the rest of the quail. He's still moving around, eating and drinking. This has been going on for a few days now. Should I seperate him from the crowd? Give him anything to help? If he needs medicine, I'm looking for natural remedies as we are raising our covey for organic eating. My son has medical issues and this is a must. Any suggestions as to his problem? Thanks a bunch!!!
