My wife went out to check on the chicks last night before we went to bed. One of them had gotten a piece of her hair, that had fallen in the coop, wrapped around its tongue. The other chicks thought it was something to eat and were tugging on it, making it tighter. She came and got me and I armed myself with a flashlight, magnifying headlamp and a pair of tweezers. While she held the poor chirping chick still, I managed to untie the hair from its tongue. She was a little wobbly when we first put her down, so I picked her back up and cupped her in my hands till she recovered a bit. Doesn't appear to be any damage as she was eating and drinking normally within a few minutes. Whew, tragedy avoided! Just a reminder to keep your coop free of strings and threads....oh and long hair!
