    Check for pasty butt.
    Are there other chicks in with them? If so, put the two in something together, but seperate from the other chicks so you can monitor their poo...
    Are they on medicated feed?
    Are they staying warm enough?
    Do they drink at all on their own?

    I always start with Poly-vi-sol (no iron) vitamin drops and give a drop at the beak 3 times a day.
