Kathleen, I’ve never had a problem, I rear my birds on
shavings. It may be the incubation that is causing this.

Subject: [gsp-l] Spraddle legs in Quail chicks
am wondering if anyone else out there raising their own quail for training
with. If you do, can you tell me what you put in the bottom of your
brooder to prevent spraddle legs in the chicks? About half of mine end up
with it from this one brooding pair of quail get it, so it's possible it's just
bad genetics, but I am hoping it's not. If you have any suggestions as to
what to put in the bottom of the brooder pen to help rectify this problem I
would greatly appreciate it.
