    :bun:jumpyLove reading all the questions and seeing all the help from members. Just know I’m going to love being apart of backyardchickens. My thread name came from this Easter weekend when I added 5 new chicks.
    You pick them out with love and excitement for what will they be. I bring them home. Set them up with all the love and care I can. In a safe place. To wake up with them on my mind and praying and hoping they are all OK. I walk into the coop and I’m not hearing them talk. My heart drops and I open the door to find them all in the water dish... wet, cold and lifeless. I swoop them all up and start praying as I dry them all off and see what I’m dealing with. I lost one and saved 4! This is how I found backyard chickens. Look for information on how to best help them overcome there trauma and water in the ears and 1 with water in the lungs.
    I’m excited to be here❤️!

    As of now ... all four are doing very well. I just have one that I’m a little worried about.

    :welcome

    I'm sorry for your loss but glad the others seem to be ok. If you put clean marbles in the base of their waterer, that will help prevent them from swimming laps in it.

    Best wishes!

    Perfect! Got it ... it was so hard to find them that way. I don’t ever want to find that again. I have just been watching them and one seems to have trouble resting.
