    Hey folks, just grabbed 8 quail and they are in bad shape. I can keep them for a week to 10 days then they are going to animal control. Any suggestions on where to post this? Medical- some are plucked with small sores, hitting them with a permethrin spray and tribiotic creme. Two seem to be...

    Hi, I noticed my roller babies had blood on their feathers that were starting to grow in. I didn't know why that was until I saw one of my Buttons peck out one of the babies feathers. :( Since the babies were on the floor, I moved them into a nesting bowl so that they would be left alone. :)...

    Hi guys, I just found one of my button quail, Hopscotch, with what appears to be a dislocated leg. While she's still able to hop around, the entire limb is twisted backwards, and when I inspected it, it definitely seems to be disconnected. She's not making any pain squeaks, but I'm sure it...

    Hi I am new to raising pigeons and i do a lot of reading about lofts. I have read a lot of stuff about people getting quail and putting them in your loft so they clean up the extra seed the pigeons don't eat. I don't no if this is true but would love to no. Any helps great and thanks for your time.

So I asked the shop teacher, and he thinks it's Cypress. Very smooth and practically grainless, so it made a perfect surface to...

    I have a 1-month old button quail that I've had from an egg. Recently, I've noticed that the poor baby is hardly able to walk. He (?) seems to slide around on his side, pushing himself along with his legs. I'm not sure if it's always the same side, but this problem has been getting worse as he...

    The Quail family was by and I counted 22 babies this year. Pretty good when that many can make it to the flying stage, a good year for the Quail. NAB :-)
