We are having a bit of an emergency tonight. When changing out the water and food this evening, my SO discovered that one of our chicks had managed to get a string stuck on it's tongue. It was from the tarp that lines the large brooder box they are in, and it was not there at around 7pm when I brought our goat kids into the garage. However, by the time that he found the chick the tip was so badly cut off from circulation that it was already starting to necrose. It was just the first few millimeters of it's tongue, so we made the snap decision to try and get the string off. When that didn't work, we were forced to cut the tip of the tongue off. Thankfully, we got the bleeding stopped but the chicks tongue is VERY swollen, to the point where it's having trouble breathing because it's blocking it's airway a bit. We set the chick back in the brooder for a few moments while we got a separate box set up, and the chick managed to recover from it's gasping, panicked state and drank a bit of water and tried to eat. It's in a box without food or water by itself, but I don't know what else to do. It's too late to call a vet for advice. Help!
