It's a Miracle!

Look at this little chick. I found it sprawled out in the food dish.

It had hopped in to get a tasty morsel & couldn't get back out again. I don't know how long the tiny little chick lay there, but it got too cold & when I found it I was sure it was dead.

I had laid it on top of the nest box & did a few things in the chicken coop, when I saw his beak open, so I put the chick in my cupped hands to try to warm it up. Then I took it to the warm house & placed it on a towel in the sunshine.

The baby chick recovered in a box with a heat lamp warming up it's fuzzy body.

Dawn named him little guy. Now he is back safe & sound with his mom & siblings.
