In the Brooder
- May 29, 2012
Earlier I went to pick up my Welsummer. She went to run from me but caught her on her second step Id say. She is semi tame but never gave much of a hoot when you held her. Tonight she was happy healthy pecking around when I picker her up. She didnt fight me but flapped her wing out so I tucked it back under my arm,I walked out to the coop and she starts like shes trying to get air and cant. I tried everything I could think of holding her upside down and smacking her back, tried lookng down her throat and saw absolutely nothing and even tried CPR and nothing would work. She died in my arms as I still tried to save her. I know Im a newbie really cause I havent had chickens since I was a kid but I have never seen or heard of anything like his. It was the wierdest thing. I know one thing, I wish I would of never picked her up. She was so happy and such a sweetie. Im just heart broken I did that to her. I kept thinking I felt something in her throat but cant be for certain. If this was to happen again and anyone would know what happened could ya give me instructions on what to do if it did happen agian. I just kept thinking I wasnt doing something right or something I should of been doing and didnt think of it, I sure dont mean to take away from anyone that has a emergency so this can wait if needed be.Im just scared if it ever happens agian like what to do to help them. SO scared.
