The day before yesterday, one of my quail hens looked a little unwell. She'd sit in a corner and look like she's trying to lay an egg. She never did lay an egg. I assumed she was eggbound so I checked by feeling the area just above her vent, there was nothing, what did concern me was that she pooped out this white, milky stuff, nothing solid, just a liquid. The next day, she began to close her eyes more often, again looking like she was trying to lay an egg but there was nothing. I picked her up and noticed something; she lost weight. When I got,her, she was the heaviest out of the trio, but she felt as if she weighed the same as my 4wk old chicks, and she's 9 months old. When I let her down, normally she would leap off my hand, but she only weakly walked off... She died today... I was horrified. She was my first (as well as my other two) She was gentle, and friendly. I'll miss her so much... I checked her vent, no mites. Checked her eyes, healthy, no nasal discharge, but her belly had a weird shape. Instead of having a nice curve, it was more like a curve with a dip on the middle. I do not know if she was wormed but would pumpkin seeds work? Now her mate keeps calling for her.. And her friend will have to suffer from being mated and bald... thanks in advance.
