    To get right down to the point I bought six turkey chicks from a hatchery, there were two chicks who were opening their mouths like they were trying to chirp but there was nothing, I have had them for a few days now and one seems to be weaker but the other is still going strong just like the others, could they be sick? I have looked around but I could not find anything like this. They are starting to get their feathers on their wings so I hope that helps with age because I am unsure on their exact age.

    Need more details. How is their brooder set up? Do they have heat?

    They do have a heat lamp that is always on unless it is too hot to have it on but that is never for very long. They have feed (turkey poult feed since they are still quite fuzzy) and water in the corners of the brooder and everything has been cleaned daily since I am a bit of a clean freak.
