    Sometimes raising chickens has its low points. There are, however, plenty of miracles and uplifting stories that can maybe help someone. A sort of "Chicken Soup for the Chicken Lover's Soul" sort of forum post. If you have an uplifting tale about one of your chickens or someone you know, post it!

    I'll start off:

    Lately the temperature has been dropping from 80's to near or below freezing. My brood hen was sitting on eggs and hatched one out. Waiting for the others she didn't leave the nest-but the little chick had! The chick had gotten stuck outside of the nest. Hours of near freezing and when I found the chick, the poor thing looked dead. I rushed the chick inside and gave a gentle push on the chest and kept it under the brooder lamp. Over minutes, slowly the lifeless chick twitched, then moved, then chirpped, then stood up! The little chick is alive and well, as if nothing happened. While my poor broody hen can't have her/him back, at least its healthy and happy!

    What's your story?
