    Is that possible? It's a quail chick.

    I'm not quite sure what you mean by in one eye? Do you mean it's head is bent to one side?

    Can you give a little more detail as to what it's doing?

    Well, my chick has one eye closed, it won't open.
    He pulls his (she pulls her ;) ) head backwards every now and then, but it's not wry necked (yet?)

    I read that closed eyes could be stargazer?

    Can you open the eye to check that nothing has got in there?
    What feed do you have your quail on? Is it higher protein game bird feed?

    I have 27% for the chicks as well as the bigger birds.
    It seems to fixed itself, I did give poly vi sol though.
