    I Had given water to my silkie chicks that were in thier brooder . They were born in december ( so you know what size they are )

    Well i must have left the lid open a little cuz when i let the yorkies in from out side they ran to the room with the brooder and 1 of them MIkko grabbed the silkie by the side i grabed mikko and he dropped the chick . There are no cuts or wounds on her . SHe drank water . She was sitting still at first when i put her back in to the brooder but walked to get water . Will she be ok ?? She is the nicest looking of th bunch

    watch her closely; she may be sore or bruised from being grabbed. It might not be a bad idea to put electrolytes in the water and/or give her probiotics like plain unsweetened yogurt to help counteract the stress. I hope she does fine. [​IMG]
