Poor Cloud, Poor Cole
We had a near disaster on the farm overnight. It was nearly 9:00pm last night when we finished dinner. Chase and I went out to lock up the critters by the light of an iPhone app.
Fast forward to this morning when Cole came inside nearly in tears. It seems his little silkie, Cloud, spent the night in the duck pond. She must have fallen in and gotten water-logged. Since it was dark when we locked up, Chase and I didn't notice her.
She was lethargic and shivering. We put her under a heat lamp and dried her feathers with the hairdryer. I'm happy to report that she seems to have made a full recovery! Looks like we have another step we need to add to our evening routine....check the pond for chickens.
