Weird feathes?

Post by Klaire on Tue Apr 22, 2008 6:37 pm

The smallest of my quails doesnt have the same wing feathers as the others, and I've seen her hop a lot. She was slower than the others at getting any of her feathers, so have I just got to wait?

Hi,

The feathers are not tucked in behind the others, straighten the wing out and tuck them back where they belong.
