Sorry I’ve Been Away….Injured Quail update!

Hello my friends!!  Sorry I’ve been a little busy lately, you may have noticed I haven’t posted in a few days.  I have been house/pet sitting for my sister for the last 10 days.  On day 2 her flock of Coturnix quail were attacked by a predator and all were lost but 1.  You may remember hearing about this on my last posts.  Good news is, he’s still alive!  I’ve been nursing him back to health, but it hasn’t been easy.  He still requires around the clock feedings and water thru a syringe because his eyes are still shut:(  I’m not sure if he’ll ever see again.  All the swelling has gone down but still they’re shut and I can’t figure out why other then they were badly scratched and my hope is they’re still healing.

I have also been caring for her remaining 6 Bobwhite quails, 11 chickens, 9 cats, 3 dogs, 4 pet rats, 2 bearded dragons, 1 turtle, 2 snakes, a full incubator, a garden and bringing in the mail.  That’s about 2+ hours of my day!  I have also been watering my neighbors gardens, flower beds, and potted plants everyday, another 30-45 minutes of my day.  My mother is also out of town so I have been making daily trips to her house to water outside plants and bring in mail.  Not to mention I still have all my own house/farm/yard chores to keep up with.  So there’s been little time to write.

I will keep you all updated on the fate of the quail.
