Egyptian Hieroglyphic chick and coil.

A quail chick stands for w or just u in the Egyptian Hieroglyphic alphabet.

Actually it is not a vowel but a w consonant usually followed by u.So we transcript it as w or u.

 In Egyptian Hieratic a coil is used instead of a quail which also marks the w or u in the Hieroglyphic alphabet.The coil also marks the number 'one hundred' in Egyptian numerals.

Both the Hieroglyphic chick and the coil are often found at the end of words as determinative signs which note the plural and they are not read.
