    A search on Google of "chick sleeping" yields a whole lot more than just sleeping chicks. [​IMG]

    I wish that I had some previous experience with baby chickens. I have minor experience with baby parrots and slightly more with baby songbirds and they were all so different from these gals. Everything I see makes me think my babies are going to drop dead. I still think that's a possibility with my Brahma, but I'm hoping it's just paranoia with everyone else. [​IMG]

    Yeah... Too much watching here. My eyes have that gummy "why-the-heck-are-you-not-asleep" feeling. I'm not 20 years old anymore! [​IMG]

    Still, this Brahma has me up. I just hope she pulls through. [​IMG]

    Awww!!! Hang in there. Mine are over 2 months old, and I had a nightmare that one of them drowned! I only lost one that way, and it was when they were less than a week old and still clumsy and top heavy. Good luck!

    Thanks... [​IMG]

    I think I'm going to call it a night. I managed to get in a couple of licks of my super concentrated avian probiotics and I've gotten a lot of pedialyte in. I don't want to waterlog her. She just made a giant poop on me... 1st I've seen since I noticed that she was acting weird, which was 8 hours ago. Of course it squashed right against her bottom so I hope THAT doesn't create a problem. [​IMG]
