    When I went to go check on my chicks this morning to my extreme surprise and utter horror, I found one of my EE chicks INSIDE the water feeder. Luckily, the chick hadn't drowned, but it was soaked to the bone. I felt so bad for it! I've dried it off, and secluded it from the other chicks so they don't peck it to shreds. However, it's acting strange... It's limping although it shows no sign of injury. Is there anything I can do for the little guy?
