I'm new here so hi everyone. Earlier this morning I found one of my juvenile speckled Coturnix quail with a strange foot problem. He is about 3.5 weeks old and has just moved from my brooder (1/8" mesh flooring) to my coop (1/2" mesh flooring). I moved 11 total and the rest are fine. It appears as if walking hurts him and he primarily lays on his chest or tail. A google search turned up the possibility of quail pox, but the pictures I found suggest otherwise. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what is causing this and how to treat/prevent it?
