I posted this in the emergencies section this morning in case anyone had any other suggestions, but thought it might be a good precautionary warning to new chickie owners. I went to let my chickens out this morning and took a quick peek at the peeps in the brooder. So glad I took a second look and noticed one of my Mille Fleurs were missing. Took me a couple minutes to find it. Somehow it had gotten itself wedged between the chick feeder and the wall of the brooder. I would never have thought a chick could fit back there, but then again, I've never had chicks as small as these d'Uccles are. It was cold and barely moving, but still alive! I spent about 15 minutes holding it close under the heat lamp and rubbing it. Then I dipped its beak in water several times and gave it a small drop of Poly-vi-sol. It wasn't moving much though, but I had to go pick up hatching eggs at the post office (which wasn't the greatest timing) and get son on the school bus. So I put the little chick into a small basket under the brooder light, sprinkled some food on the paper towels and crossed my fingers. When I returned from the post office and got son off to school, the little chick was standing up in the basket, peeping and wide-eyed!!! Half an hour later it was almost back to normal, so I put it back with the others and its walking around pecking and chirping. I almost can't tell which one it was. Whew! Talk about nerve wracking. I sure hope it is going to be ok!! Update: The little chick is still doing good, I'm not even sure now which one was near death now. I just hope there are no lasting effects. I can't believe it made such a quick turnaround with as lifeless as it was.
