Yes, I am adding warm water. Thanks..... As of this mornin', she is still kickin........
I have a few pics!
Some of the Seramas
And the first one seen under my broody (under her tail)
There is another one out, I saw its legs under her and 2 empty shells, but haven't seen the other chick yet.
I have a story that is OT but I know you will all feel the way I do ! lol
We were at a poultry swap/sale Sunday morning; it was COLD and rainy and there had been much discussion on the sale's FB page about how to keep baby chicks warm without power etc, so people knew it was going to be a challenge.
I was looking for laying hens, but the daughter and I were determined to take our time and look at everything as the last sale was very rushed for us. At the second to last vendor I come upon yet another Tupperware container of freezing, huddled day old chicks but one of these is so freshly hatched IT HASN'T DRIED OFF YET. It was smaller than all the others and trying to duck under them for warmth, but of course there was no warmth to be had. Turns out it was one of three Chocolate Orpingtons in the box, but the vendor indicated she probably wasn't going to sell the little one as she 'wasn't doing very well'.
I shot the woman my best dirty death stare, told her that chick had no business being at the sale, and told her to sell me all three. I immediately stuck the cold one inside my daughter's shirt and she stayed there until we got home. We scrounged through the truck and found an old hand warmer pack for the other two.
I'm mad at the woman who had a barely hatched chick for sale outside in the rain. I'm mad at myself for giving her my money that was earmarked for mature hens. I'm mad that every bird there was stressed to the limit. I don't think I'll attend poultry swaps any more.
Oh, and anyone north of the 49th parallel I should have Chocolate Orpington chicks for sale next spring .
