    My mom and I went to this chicken swap and we got three chicks.
    My dad left them outside but he forgot that they haven't fully grown there feathers yet and it was cold out.
    Me and my mom went to check the chicks and got the chicks inside the brooder were it was warm.
    But I realized one of the chicks were frozen!!!
    my mom picked the chick up and put it up were the heat lamp was.
    It was still breathing!
    An hour later the chick was raising it's head and was walking.
    IT'S A MIRACLE!!

    It's great to hear that chick is still alive. But I have a question, how could it be frozen at this time of the year?? And how old is it?

    I would say the chick is a week old.
    But the chick wasn't frozen stiff
    When I realized the was very cold it was laying
    on it's back.
    It was frozen but not completely.

    One time one of the neighbor kids put my cat in the freezer because it scratched them. I came home and found my poor cat frozen - it wasn't dead, but not really alive either. Very cold, stiff, shallow breathing -- I couldn't revive him so I called the vet. The vet said to give it some smelling salts, I said I didn't have any so he suggested a little gasoline in the cat's mouth with an eye dropper, it would do the same thing. So I gave it a try - put a few drops of gas in his mouth and he gasped and sputtered and let out a yowl - jumped out of my arms and raced around the living room, up and down the curtains and over the couch. Then he ran in circles around my feet about 10 times and fell out flat on the floor!

    I'am glad the chick is still alive.
    I thought it was dead.
    Thanks to my mom the chick is ALIVE.
    The chick was doing so well that I couldn't tell
    Witch chick got frozen.


    I'am glad your cat is okay.
    I bet I know how you felt when your cat was
    frozen.

    The cat is just fine - He just ran out of gas.
