Thread Starter 

I have a chicke, a few weeks old, and it accidentally fell down in a bucket of water and almost drowned. I'm keepin it warm with heated pads and such but what more can i do? It looks and sounds like it has water in its lungs and I dont know what to do.
Please hurry and help, Im scared it wont make it..

I'm not sure if there is much you can do. Maybe you could just keep the chick close, and I know that for humans, patting on their back near their lungs helps them clear their throat. I am by no means a professional, and I don't know if it would help, but perhaps it would help with a chick. Not sure. I have heard of people having success with chicken CPR, so if it comes to that and the chick stops breathing and you have nothing to lose, might as well try. Good luck.
