    I need some help. I went to check on my chicks, and my silkie bantam looked like she had gotten drinched with water but it had already dried. Now she is breathing heavy. I don't know what to do. Any advice is appreciated.

    *snicker* your thread title is un-intentionally funny. [​IMG]

    Make sure she has access to the heat lamp, and maybe give her some electrolytes or sugar water. A scrambled egg may help perk her up too.

    HAHA! I didn't realize how that sounded! Thank you. She seems to be doing better, but I will do as you said. I wish I could change my title now!
