Some of my quail get swollen toes and they usually heal without any help. Keep an eye on it, and let us know if it gets bigger or what.

ok But what about that Scab Looking thing on The quail? Should i leave it on? Or peel it off... And this was on the Top Of the Toe So I don't think The quail Would have stepped on something..

That could be what caused it. Quail toes look suspiciously like worms to other quail an if they get a habit of toe picking its really hard to break. Do you feed them whole meal worms? If so start cutting the worms up so they don't look like quail toes anymore, that may help.

Just put anti biotic ointment like neosporin on it until it heals. Let the scab fall off on its own. That'll happen quicker if you put ointment on it a couple times a day.
