Woman Saves Chicken Using "Mouth-to-Beak" Resuscitation

FEBRUARY 8, 2006 - Posted at 2:47 p.m. CST

 

ARKADELPHIA, AR - Sometimes a chicken does have lips, just not her own.

Marian Morris saved her brother's exotic chicken, Boo Boo, by administering "mouth-to-beak" resuscitation on the fowl after it was found floating face down in the family's pond.

Morris, a retired nurse in Arkadelphia, said she hadn't had any practice with CPR in years.  But her experience with the chicken taught her she "still had it."

Morris said, "I breathed into its beak, and its dad-gum eyes popped open.  I breathed into its beak again, and its eyes popped open again."  She told her brother to keep the bird warm.

Morris says the chicken is called Boo Boo because the bird is easily frightened.  The family figures Boo Boo was startled and flopped into the pond.
