    no Hawk they will not drown you can also use a dropper and place a tiny drop on the peak. be careful not to let it go in the nasal passage . best way is to dip .

    Chicken hawk, I need you to work with me here, your killing me, I want to help the chicks if you think you can help them or not. I dont want them to suffer either. or you hurt either.

    when you incubate, this is a HUGE PART OF THE LEARNING EXPERIENCE EVERYONE will go through

    AND EVERYONE I dont care who you are YOU WILL GO THROUGH THIS DECISION

    its not easy..... its not an easy decision, only you see what is in front of you and you know what your ability is to care for them. I cant do it for you kiddo I wish I was there, I am so sorry.

    When we take on the responsibility of animals, we also make decisions for them. I thint about the animals ability to enjoy life and shorten it if that life is horrible. They depend on us to care for them. :hugs

    CHICKEN HAWK are you there?

    get the syringe and drip a little drop of gator aid in the sick beaks as byc said. if that dont work try a toothpick for a smaller drop.

    lets work on getting them energy then legs ok? after that get bandaides or that wrap I showed you.
