    I bought 10 day old silkies from Tractor Supply yesterday. All were doing great. I went to check them about 6:30 this morning and one little guy was on it's back, eyes rolling, kicking it's little legs like it was was taking it's last breath. I made sure he was warm, I put his beak in water, thinking maybe he didnt figure out how to drink or where the water was. Got some water in him,. I made some food soggy and got it down him. Still pretty lifeless I laid him down where he was warm. I kept checking on him and no change. Got the kids off to school so I was distracted for a good hour, went out there and the little guy is alive as can be! I really think this happened because he didnt know about the food and water...I'm so glad I found him just in time.
