    I had three silkie chicks that were 3 months old that my two silkies hatched out for me. I found one floating in the duck's water. It's not a low pool. It must have jumped into the edge and fallen in. I feel horrible!!! I felt even worse when the two babies that were left were making a lot of noise and it looked like they were looking for it. That breaks my heart! Could they know that it's missing?

    My condolences for your loss of your chick.
    Chickens are smart so I am sure they know one and one do not make three.
    Hopefully a lot of extra love and attention will ease their stress.
