Hi Everyone. I stumbled upon this site when I googled "How to help a baby chick that is choking." Long story short, my husband and I recently decided that we wanted to start raising chickens. Not only for pleasure (because they are more entertaining than ANY TV show that I have ever seen!) but also for their eggs/meat. Well...needless to say, when the chicks arrived(all 27 of them, they accidentally threw in 1 too many at the hatchery) we both fell in love, as I am sure all of you can understand. They are the most adorable little puff balls that I have ever seen in my entire life, and all I want to do is snuggle each and every one of them! I have even went as far as naming a least 10 of them (the rest we can't tell apart!). Anyway, one of our chicks (no idea what breed he/she is because we ordered a "mix") started doing this gaped mouth, gasping for air thing earlier today. She (I think) might have swallowed a chunk of their corn cob bedding (we had a layer of paper towels over it) and appears to be choking. As crazy as this sounds, we have tried everything from rubbing her throat like you would a dog to help them swallow a pill, to even attempting CPR on this poor little baby!!! Please give me some good news and tell me that she will digest this corn cob chunk (which we decided to remove from their brooder). Please tell me what I can do to help her!!! Thank you so much in advance, and God bless!
