    I am currently warming it up in my cleavage! I had no idea the love you could have for these little ones and of course my older ones. It was awful she looked dead! I scooped her up and ran inside put her up next to our wood stove to get instant heat and now she is in my shirt. She is moving now! I hope she can recover from this! My younger peeps didn't seem to mind the cold they are already outside!

    She opened her eyes loked me straidht in my eyes,took a couple of breaths and I guess that was her way of saying good-bye.[​IMG] I even kept them in the coop longer this morning due to the cold! I am bawling, this is a very bad feeling, I feel like I just killed one of my babies!

    Thanks everyone for the condolences, it was a rough morning. Now I have to figure out where to bury Droopy, the ground was too hard this morning and hopefully my DH will dig the hole for me tomorrow and then I'll say my goodbyes.
