Injured quail happen, and can happen easily, usually from one another. Too many males or too few females and you are going to see head and neck injuries in your quail.
It can happen quickly no matter how hard you try to be a good quail owner.
But it is easy to treat them and get them healed up quickly and back out in their cage.
The first step is to separate the injured quail.
What You Need – triple antibiotic cream – cayenne pepper – Enfamil Poly-Vi-Sol - eye drops
I mix up some cayenne pepper and water to make a paste.
Apply to scalped quail. It acts as a painkiller.
I have seen quail go from looking like they were dead to bouncing around, eating, and drinking very quickly.
