    I have a quail that hatched Halloween night, so it's 3 days old. I saw today it had a pasty butt so I cleaned that up, but while soaking and washing with warm water I found this extrusion.
    Any ideas? This chick has deformed toes on one foot as well.
    I've highlighted the affected area.
    Thanks in advance!

    It looks like a small bit of unabsorbed yolk. If its active, eating and drinking, and none of the other chicks are messing with it I wouldn't worry about it too much. Just keep an eye on it and keep the bedding in the brooder as clean as possible so it isn't getting anything nasty on there.

    It seems to be acting fine. I'll keep an eye on it. Thank you!

    I had errands to do this morning, but when I got home at 11am, the quail chick was dead.
