    One of my buttons got loose and hurt her head. Its got all the skin missing and bleeding on her head. It is about the size a quarter inch, I put liquid skin on it. What else can I do, and will she recover or is she now subject to die? I read somewhere if a button gets hurt and bleeds, they usually end up dying. I am so sad. [​IMG]

    Button quail?

    I hope that every button that gets hurt or bleeds won't die. I don't think that is a hard and fast rule for anything. I'm sure you are taking very good care of him/her. Keep her warm and well fed and watch closely to make sure her head is not getting infected.

    Don't be sad. There are a lot of very knowledgeable people who can answer just about any question. Keep your chin up.

    I'm sending good vibes your way.[​IMG]

    My pharoh quail got pecked in the head and was a little bloody. He is doing fine now, and all I did was clean him off. I know mine are probably a little hardier than yours. I wish you well and good luck!
