Oh, I'm so sad. Enjoying friday night, watching tv, having a nice dinner. Husband checked on hens and chicks just 3 hrs ago. I asked how the mom and 8 four day old chicks were, if they were ok? He said they were doing great, indoors, outdoors scratching around, having a great time. I went out just now and found one dead in the big chickens water dish. I have a small waterer for the little ones and a plastic dishpan from the dollar store for the big ones. Whenever there are chicks, I put 2 large rocks that protrude out of the water. I always figured that if one got in, it would find its way to the rock and live. But it did not. I am so sad. Always feels worse when you feel responsible. I always worry each day I go to work if they will be ok. This one died when I was just 40 feet away. If only I had gone out earlier I might have found her before it was too late.
