    I just had to do CPR on a chick that it's mom accidentally laid on ( she laid on its neck). After a few grueling minutes of CPR and a rush inside to my brooder and the heat lamp. The chick is breathing on its own and resting under the heat lamp. I will return it to mom when it is strong enough and can move around. And yes I will do it at night. Just thought I would share my exhilerating tale with everyone. PS if it makes it I am going to need a GOOD name for it. Suggestions?

    Thanks It is starting to move its legs more now. I mean when I found it, the chick was not breathing and had no heartbeat. I am amazed that the CPR that I know for humans and cats and dogs worked to save this chick. I will post a picture soon.

    I only know this because I went to a catholic grade school. You can call it Lazarus, you know, the guy Jesus brought back from the dead.

    Could call it MiMi considering the baby nearly gave you an MI (myocardial infarction/heart attack). Good luck with your baby.
