    We found 4 month old in above ground pool, alive but shivering and has eyes closed. The chicken pooped a very runny one. Is there anything I should do besides talking and stroking her body in the sun (with head shaded)?

    THANK YOU!

    Wrap her up in a towel to keep her warm and use a hair dryer to dry her. Just expose small sections of her. Keep it moving around so you don't burn her. And get some electrolytes in her.
