And, my tip for massaging them (because I use to have one that I did this on).... they love their neck and shoulders rubbed! *hehe*

I did have to laugh... really hard at this. *grins* Never worked on a chick, but I worked on a goat once. It was amazing that the poor thing was able to walk right again when I was done. I did traction by pulling on it's horns, when it got mad about me pulling on it's neck. *hehe*
Might as well "do what you do", makes sense!!!
I'm excited about your chick!!!!!
Please let us know how he/she continues to do.
So pueppi...here's my situation...I do chair at a local farmer's market and we have a vendor come in to do pony rides when her schedule and weather permits. She has a 2yo goat (a mixed breed, i remember her saying mama was a breed known for dairy...white streaks on the face??) that had managed to squeeze it's head through the fence and twist it around getting her horns caught so her chin was sitting at about ten o'clock. Owner figures it happened in the afternoon and she found her the next morning in shock. I'm not certain just how many days ago it occurred (we spoke at market on Sunday). She's been trying to do some hot towels to ease the muscle spasms and has been administering aspirin. Supposedly this goat is coming over tomorrow afternoon to visit me and I do not have the advanced training that you have...any tips or recommendations? This goat apparently still looks like a corkscrew and is sequestered from the rest of the herd to keep her safe.
