    They could be suffering from shipping stress, whiich can include overheating or chilling, dehydration, or rough handling. Keep them warm but not too warm, and give electrolytes and vitamins in their water by dipping their beaks into the water. Products such as Poultry Nutri-drench, Poultry Cell, or SaveAChick are very good. Tonight if you can until you can get those, put a tsp of sugar and a tiny pinch of salt in a liter of water, and give drinks as often as possible.
