I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Hi and welcome to BYC. On the whole, starter food has all the nutrients that a chick needs to be be healthy. You could always search for 

"treats for chicks" or try the following forum http://www.backyardchickens.com/f/11/raising-baby-chicks.

 

Good luck

Why do they need a boost?  Are they having   diarrhea  with or without blood.  With blood they may have coccidiosis which needs to be treated or can debilitate them rapidly. Your vet could check a poo sample.
