My neighbors left this morning until Wednesday. i went down around 11 this morning and everything was fine. i just went down (about 8:00) and the chick is already hurt. the neighbor read that hanging sting s fun for them to play with, but it looks like one of them got it tangled on its tongue. First off, im not even sure if chickens have tongues, ive never thought of it or read about it. i dont think he swallowed it and pulled an organ up, or he would be in worse shape. we cut down all the string she had up, and cut the sting about a foot above hm so we could look closer. looks like its tied around its tongue so we cut it as close to tongue as we could and set him down. he walked into the coop with his tail down. he wasnt bleeding now, but there is blood on his beak and the string that looks dry. he is about 2 months old, barred rock.should we bring him home and put him in a box inside? or leave him there. the other chickens werent pecking at him or anything. please let me know, and if you need anymore info, please ask. ive only been watching them 8 hours and ive already had a problem.
