    I lost one of my EE babies today [​IMG] I went out to make sure the momma hen had all her babies in the coop, when I lifted her, I only saw 3 out of 4 babies. I looked around the pen with my flashlight and there was my poor baby, floating [​IMG] [​IMG] It went up to the goose and duck water and fell in and drowned [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I am so sad right now, I had brought the water thing back for the ducks (usually it is kept out front out of the yard) I didn' t even think about the babies falling [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
