    We just had a flash flood. It came up very suddenly with lightning and torrential rain. I ran outside as soon as it was safe enough and our 3mo old flock didn't get under the awning or in their coop. Three are dead and several look to be in shock. I've never had birds not go into their shelter before. I brought them all in the house and they are on towels under heat lamps in my living room. What can I do for them? I'm bawling my eyes out over the three I lost :(
