    Hey I really need help One of my baby cortunix quail is getting really sick and I dunno what to do for him. He's really listless, doesnt want to eat or drink much, and is now vomitting. The thing is he's really trying hard to fight it. I dunno what it is or what to do to help. I've tried honey water corn syrup water and feeding him eggs. nothing has worked so far. =/ Let me know if anyone has any suggestions. Thank you.

    How old is your coturnix chick.

    If he is spitting up, he could be getting too much water in his system. What feed are you feeding your chicks?

    With chicks there will be weak ones that will just not make it, it's sad but that's how life is.

    I would stop the syrup, too much sugar isn't good for them either, it dehydrates them. Straight water, straight feed, you can separate the chick to its own brooder with its own lamp and just wait it out.
