    Yeah I'm glad he ate. I was worried he wouldn't.

    Good Update:
    The quail (I still have not named him) is doing MUCH better. His wound is healing and he is more active, he even started to crow again. His eye is still not open but it is still there its just stuck closed. He is eating and drinking well now and is off the electrolytes. His wound, as far as I know, no longer smells. You can not tell that thee is anything wrong with him unless you see the scabs on his head. He is acting normal and energetic. He turns his head sideways so he can see forward sometimes. He scratches his scab A LOT though, I think It itches. We put a little more ointment on it yesterday because he made it bleed a little from all the scratching.

    I think he needs a name now, what do y'all think?
