So, in a strangely ironic twist, I put the little chick into the oven to see if I could help bring him back to life! After a few minutes in some warm towels, there was no improvement so I gently picked him up and walked over to the compost bucket. Right as I was about to drop him in he sucked in a big gulp of air and started to breathe! It was amazing. So back in the oven he went. Over the course of the whole day we kept him in warm towels, under a heat lamp, and on a steady diet of sugar water.
Amazingly, the little guy did a full recovery and was ready to rejoin his friends for the evening feeding. We’ve had no mortality since I put him back, so it’s great to report that he’s thriving and happy!

I will absolutely post pictures as soon as we are done.
I lastly want to thank everyone in our community who have been bringing us wonderful suppers each night to help us with the baby. We have personal notes on the way, but it is just so important to me to sing the praises of our amazing community here in Pescadero. We couldn’t do half of what we do without the help our neighbors and friends!
