Hi Everyone,
I have several adult Coturnix (7 months old) in otherwise good health that have started to develop severe swelling in their breasts.  I can remove several cc's of lightly cloudy fluid from these areas of edema from just under the skin of the breast with a syringe and needle.  So far the birds are still laying and remain active without any noticable weight loss.  If I drain an area, it will re-fill over the course of a couple of days.  Nothing new with feed or water intake.  Can't come up with any plausible diseases when I search the Merck Vet Index or Mississippi State web pages.  Anybody seen this in their Coturnix before?  All suggestions welcome!  Thanks!

If I were you I'd sacrifice one for a Vet to do tests on, asap.

Follow Reeves advice. The man knows what to do. In the meantime i would think about isolating those birds. Wouldn't hurt.
