    Orpington, surf through the emergencies post on both forums...I'm sure you're not the only one this past winter, and valuable information is there..

    For the present, make sure the peep is in a warm environment (in the house, but not under a heat lamp... Coat the legs with vasoline (moisture barrier) and feed pediasure soaked bread, with electrolytes and vitamins in the water...

    Good luck with this..
