    I'm so Sorry [​IMG] Try giving them some vitamins and electrolytes. If you can't pick up a package of Sav-A-Chick at the Fleet store you can give them some children's Poly-vi-sol vitamins and pedialyte (sp?) You can cook a egg and mash it up and add a small amount of sugar water to it for tonight. You may have to hold the chick to encourage it to eat. Hope it makes it.
