It was asleep with it's face in the bedding (pine shavings) and I was going to water and feed them and woke it up. It immediately started retching as if it had the dry heaves. I could see a piece of what looked like the pine shavings in it's mouth. I hurried with it into the bathroom and found a pair of tweezers and tried to get the piece of shavings out of it's mouth, I got one little one but I think it swallowed a larger piece than what I managed to get out. The poor little thing did the retching for about 10-15 minutes. I rubbed it's crop and thought for sure it was a goner, but after it laid on the bottom of the brooder for a little while, suddenly it jumped up and seemed a lot better. I sort of stuck her beak in the water and she drank a drop or two. That was about 9am today. It's now 7pm and she seems better. Since I have 3 Buff Orps in this brooder (they all look alike to me...LOL) I put magic marker on top of her head so I would know which one it was so I could keep an eye on her. I know that my chicks like to play with the bedding...one will pick up a piece of it and they'll chase each other around trying to take it...but I had no idea they would swallow it! I have a lot to learn!! I do have grit in the brooder, BTW. Will this chick survive this or will I lose it?? Is this common?
