Here's my story, I had found a splash silkie still in his shell, not moving, not getting out nothing. Completely dead. So I pealed off the shell and sure enough he was dead. So what's the craziest thing I thought of? YEH, mouth to mouth. So I breathed in his beak 15 times, then took my fingers from under his beak and rubbed him down across his chest, to in between his legs. Did the mouth to mouth and finger thing for about 10 minutes maybe more, I don't know really wasn't keeping track of time. Instead I was yelling at the poor little guy saying things like "I waited 21 days for you and now your just going to quit on me?, Come on little guy!!!". well after about 10 times or more I stopped and stared at him getting ready to cry when BOOM, he takes a breath. At first I was like "HUH? NO WAY". SO I kept up with the mouth to mouth, pausing each time. BOOM another breath, OH HELL NO, impossible... Sure enough the little guy was taking short little breaths on his own. I put him in the incubator and laid him on a heating pad, HUGE MISTAKE!!!! The breaths got stronger and stronger, his legs were even twitching. I was like OMG, OMG, OMG OMG NO WAY.. Needless to say I had left the room for 30 minutes to put the ducks to bed and sadly he had stopped breathing again. I should have stayed by him because I did the costly mistake of laying him on that heating pad, trying to think of the quickest way to get him warm but causing him to stop again.. It was to hot for the little guy.. Stupid mistake. But amazing that he took that BREATH. So what's the CRAZIEST THING have you ever done to save a CHICK???
