...sometimes even a single feather is enough to fly. (Robert Maclean)



first week
2nd week

Dominique is our 'runt' -- slow to develop following some health issues.  For a few days we thought we were going to lose her.  Her respiratory rate was very fast / strained, she couldn't stand or eat on her own... we nursed her through with TLC & some coconut water!  She continues to be much smaller than the other girls.  At one point she was nearly 1/5th the size of our Buff Orpington, who weighed in at nearly 6 ounces while Dominique was 1.3 ounces!  Little Dommy is catching up, her breathing has slowed to normal & what she lacks in size she definitely make up for in spirit!
