Oh God, I am so sorry.  Your chick may die on its own, but you may have to cull it yourself if it doesn't happen soon.  I have never heard of a chick surviving such a malformation.

Please keep us posted.  You may send a PM to MissPrissy for instructions on how to cull a new chick.  I believe she uses kitchen shears to remove the head . . . quick and merciful.

Others with experience may have more to add.



So very sorry.


Ed. to add - - if you are a minor, please get an adult's help before you do anything!

If you can't handle the kitchen shear method, look at this: http://www.alysion.org/euthanasia/

i'm so sorry.  i don't think there is any saving it.  i had one chick hatch once and it got stuck to the egg and that pulled it's intestines out.  Raced it to the vet and they couldn't do anything, so put it to sleep.  That ran me $135.  So, if you can follow the advice of the other posters and do it yourself, it would be a much better option.

Again, i'm so sorry.  sad

Please beware of what you read on the internet.  The referenced site states that the method of euthanasia described is approved by the AVMA.  It is specifically stated in the AVMA guidelines for euthanasia that this method of CO2 euthanasia is "UNACCEPTABLE."     From: www.avma.org
