    i got some quail yesterday and a lot of them (the hens?) have balding on their backs, on 2 i have noticed a yellow crusty looking something where the new feathers are growing. anyone any idea what that is? something to be worried about?

    I would include ages and post this on the quail forum under other backyard poultry for more answers.
