    I went out to the chickens and ducks today lunch time and my lil baby fuzzy who's 7 weeks old WAS FLOATING ON TOP OF THE DUCK POND!

    I ran in rushed her back to the house, she was freezing cold, no life in her what so ever. Her eyes were open and I thought I'd lost her. Just: she was dead...

    I got her inside I was about to give up, she was lifeless, cold as ice, her pupils had dilated her heart wasn't beating.

    I was massaging her chest and just stopped trying because she was gone

    went to call my dad to tell him the bad news....

    then I herd a peep, and she was coughing up water, so i get the brooder lamp out right away and massaged her heart and got the rest of the water out of her chest and made her breath.

    slowly she came round I was the happiest person on the planet at that moment!

    she soon dried off and was running round the coop as usual with the other in less than 3 hours after she had gone.

    luckily she seems normal so no damage has been caused, and the worst thing of all I left the coop door open so the rest of the chickens had gotten out!


    THANK YOU GOD

    Great story!! I guess when your brain is the size of a pea, you can go a long time with little oxygen without major issues.

    Great job!! [​IMG]
