    Just wanted to share this cutie. We are well into spring hatching season but this little guy almost didn't make it! We monitor our youngsters daily to make sure they are gaining okay and supplemental feed if necessary. I'd been keeping an eye in him because he was starting to fall behind his sibling. A few days ago I went out for morning chores and found this little guy close to dead. He was freezing cold, completely unresponsive and not breathing. I was pretty sure he was dead honestly. Rushed him inside and for him warmed up and fed. I took him back out that afternoon but within half an hour he was going down hill again... So now he's inside being hand raised. He is doing extremely well for how far gone he was when I found him!
